Emerging tools and techniques that may advance autism research.
A new open-source software package makes it possible to model changes in human and animal behavior over the course of an experiment.
A new approach for delivering gene therapy to the brain reduces nerve damage in primates and could help make gene therapies for conditions related to autism safer.
Merging 3D clusters of neurons that mimic different brain regions models the atypical electrical activity seen in an autism-related condition.
A pair of new atlases that profile millions of cells across 15 organs offer an unparalleled look at gene activity during fetal development.
A screening technique tests how inactivated genes affect spheres of cultured brain cells; it could shed light on autism-linked mutations.
Researchers expand on the already enormous progress made on the Human Proteome Project
Researchers expand a massive repository of data on gene activity in people to show differences between males and females.
An interactive assessment allows clinicians and researchers to evaluate an autistic child’s use of language in everyday social situations.
A new test can measure the language skills of autistic children of any verbal ability, at almost any age.
