Microscopic silicon wires could enable scientists to excite neurons with light without first inserting genes into them.
An algorithm that decodes and quantifies mouse body language could reveal the brain circuits underlying certain autism features.
Watch the complete replay of James McPartland discussing the need for clinically useful biomarkers for autism.
A large array of electrodes can record the activity of neurons across a wide swath of the monkey brain.
New evidence from both people and mice points to a part of the cerebellum that helps process social information as being critical in autism.
A sweeping analysis covers evidence of regression in autism, gender dysphoria is linked to autism features, and animal models of autism receive full treatment in a special tribute.
Male mice with a genetic variant tied to autism may have learning difficulties that females with the variant do not.
The same techniques that generate images of smoke, clouds and fantastic beasts in movies can render neurons and brain structures in fine-grained detail.
Combining a brain imaging technique with a neuron stimulation method can reveal how activity at one site travels through neural networks in the brain.
