Charting the structure and function of the brain’s many circuits may unravel autism’s mysteries.
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.
Therapies that target the circuit could boost social activity, new findings suggest.
Statistical modeling and machine learning helps blunt the bias in brain imaging studies that exclude young autistic children and those with prominent traits, a new study finds.
Inherited genetic factors for autism influence brain development, new studies of autistic children and their younger siblings reveal.
The cells’ altered proliferation rates hint at ways to diagnose and potentially treat autism earlier.
Neurons with a faulty copy of SETD1A, a gene tied to autism and schizophrenia, show structural abnormalities and altered connectivity patterns.
Strategies to replace or compensate for mutated copies of the TCF4 gene could lead to treatments for this profound form of autism, a new study suggests.
