A method that visualizes nascent and migrating neurons in the mouse brain may shed light on brain development in autistic people.
Marmosets exposed to a mock infection in the womb have altered vocal development and diminished social interest; exposed macaques show changes in brain structure and function.
The social brain has a sweet spot that activates when people look each other in the eyes but not when they look at eyes in a video.
