Our Twitter feeds were awash with research activity this week, including a review of autism intervention studies and resources to build better data-wrangling skills.
Highlights this week include two gene studies — one on the role of autism-linked genes in developing interneurons and another on the genetic origins of overlapping autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
The talk of the Twittersphere turned around two influential neuroscience papers, plus a virtual trip to the World Congress of Psychiatric Genetics.
Tickling our brains on Twitter this week were threads about helping neuroscientists learn the programming language Python, a study about autistic schoolchildren, and the possible root of modern humans’ brain power.
Two overlooked groups in autism research — autistic adults and people with profound autism — dominated this week’s talk on Twitter.
This week, we’re bringing you some labors of love: a thread lamenting the autism field’s focus on gene lists, a study introducing genetic diversity in mouse models, and long-awaited results from a biomarker study.
A short time ago on Twitter feeds not so far, far away, a new voltage sensor called JEDI-2P (no, it’s not a lightsaber) had users jawing like Jawas, while other threads featured talk of mental health interventions and sex biases in autism research.
Takeaways from two team-ups titillated Twitter this week — one on the effects of mutations in the PAX5 gene and one linking rare genetic mutations to a large number of diseases and traits. Plus a primer on dopamine with facts about dopamine fasting.
Scientists took to Twitter to talk shop this week about how the software used to process electroencephalography signals can influence results, Neuropixels probes can record from human brain cells, and prenatal exposure to pollution and stress might affect autism risk.
