THIS ARTICLE IS MORE THAN FIVE YEARS OLD
This article is more than five years old. Autism research - and science in general - is constantly evolving, so older articles may contain information or theories that have been reevaluated since their original publication date.
On 18 November, SFARI.org hosted a Twitter Q&A chat live from the floors of the 2014 Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Washington, D.C.
The chat included scientists from the conference and beyond, reflecting on some of the research presented and discussing how new tools in neuroscience might help advance our understanding of autism. The conversation also included input from journalists, academic institutions and voices from the public.
