The first animal model of MYT1L syndrome suggests that fast-maturing neurons lead to the unusually small brains, social deficits and other traits seen in people with the condition.

The X chromosome holds stronger-than-expected genetic sway over the structure of several brain regions. The genes that may underlie this oversized influence have ties to autism.
Four subtypes lend new support to the idea that there isn’t a single ‘hallmark’ type of brain connectivity in people with autism.
Integrating genetic analyses into studies of babies’ brain development could help us understand how autism-related genes contribute to autism traits.
Reports of flaws in imaging research are signs of a maturing field, experts say, not a devastating blow to its results.
Atypical patterns of neuronal activity and gene expression in the striatum may characterize autism in girls, according to a new study.
Q&A with Sébastien Jacquemont and Clara Moreau: Why brain imaging signatures for autism are so elusive
The field of neuroimaging will need to combine two strategies before it can find patterns of brain activity or structure unique to autism, the researchers say.
Autistic boys and men show notable differences in brain development, according to magnetic resonance imaging scans taken over a 16-year period.
Children with highly folded and curved brains in utero tend to show autism-linked behaviors at 18 months of age, according to a longitudinal brain-imaging study.
