The United Kingdom’s exit from the European Union would endanger continent-wide collaborations.
People with autism process the pitch and emotional tone in speech differently than their neurotypical peers — which may make it harder for them to pick up on nuances of social communication.
Brain activity patterns in the first year of life may predict autism in infants at high risk for the condition.
Tuberous sclerosis provides a unique opportunity to understand autism because about half of people with that single-gene condition also have autism.
Certain patterns of electrical activity in the brain may signal autism in children with tuberous sclerosis complex, a related genetic condition.
Brain organoids made from typical human stem cells begin to show synchronized neuronal firing patterns after growing in a dish for at least four months.
Children with mutations either in CHD8 — a top autism gene — or in genes that CHD8 controls share similar characteristics.
To find biological markers of autism, scientists would be wise to measure the brain’s electrical activity along with the resulting magnetic fields.
