A new protocol aims to help researchers include more autistic people — especially those who are minimally verbal or have intellectual disability — in imaging studies.
Welcome to the Null and Noteworthy newsletter, a roundup of papers that do the vital work of reproducing a previous result or reporting the absence of one.
A new high-resolution imaging device tracks brain activity in awake mice, enabling researchers to map neural circuits across the entire brain.
A new wiring diagram of the mouse brain could help autism researchers better study how brain connections vary in mice with different genetic backgrounds.
Connections between the cerebellum and brain networks do not seem to contribute substantially to the emergence of autism traits.
People with autism or autism traits may be especially vulnerable to brain aging and cognitive decline, two studies suggest.
