Rare or common, inherited or spontaneous, mutations form the core of autism risk.
Deletion of the 22q11.2 chromosomal region alters the expression of numerous autism- and schizophrenia-linked genes, most of which are not contained within the deleted region, a new study suggests.
Long cast in supporting roles in the brain, astrocytes are now emerging as primary players in certain characteristics of autism and related conditions.
The vast stretches of DNA that don’t code for proteins could fill key knowledge gaps about autism genetics. But making sense of it all won’t be easy.
A handful of scientists are committed to advancing research on the autism-related genetic conditions their own children have.
The signaling molecule’s social role in the ‘little brain’ involves Purkinje neurons in the Crus I and Crus II regions, a new study reveals.
The catalog could help researchers understand the effects of autism-linked DNA variants that fall outside genes.
The inflammation associated with the disease, particularly in mothers, may contribute to autism traits in children.
Therapies that target the circuit could boost social activity, new findings suggest.
Siblings of autistic females are more likely to have autism than siblings of autistic males are, and mothers of autistic children carry more common, autism-linked variants than fathers do.
