Threads on a GoogleMap for the brain and guidance on communicating with autistic people in a health-care setting garnered gobs of comments this week.
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.
