A tie between first-trimester ultrasounds and autism severity is tenuous at best, misnamed genes litter the literature, and neuroscientists enjoy their version of summer camp.

A detailed analysis of the behavior of 6,500 children suggests that five types of behaviors lumped together in current diagnostic guidelines should each be considered separately.
Researchers are launching a new project that aims to collect genetic information from 50,000 people with autism, along with their relatives.
The proposed guidelines would require scientists to destroy biological specimens if they don’t have the explicit consent of the participant for further use.
A new collection stores genetic and behavioral information about children with autism in inpatient psychiatric units.
An online portal designed to give researchers easy access to genomic data may unwittingly reveal some sensitive information.
Two studies prioritize autism risk genes for further research and illuminate how different types of mutations may work together.
A surprisingly large proportion of people with autism have complex chromosomal rearrangements that were missed by conventional genetic screening.
Many children with autism have gastrointestinal problems, seizures and sleep disorders. A new study suggests that these seemingly disparate conditions are interconnected and may lead to the children’s behavioral issues.
