The neurons in the amygdala of ASD patients have reduced sensitivity to the eye region of other people’s faces, a new study reports.
Using eye tracking, researchers discover children who later go on to be diagnosed with Autism showed declining attention to other people’s eyes from the age of two months.
A new study suggests children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome may be misdiagnosed with autism due to the social impairments associated with their developmental delays.
Researchers have found full genome sequencing by examining the entire DNA code of individuals with ASD and their families. The findings look at the wide range of genetic factors associated with ASD.
Researchers report RORA, a novel candidate gene for autism, regulates a large number of other genes associated with ASD.
Researchers identify that the connectivity between the thalamus and cerebral cortex is impaired in children with autism.
Researchers Provide the First Comprehensive and Prospective Characterization of a Genetic Subtype of Autism
Researchers provide new evidence for the severity of motor, intellectual and speech impairments in Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, a sub-type of autism characterized by a mutation of the SHANK3 gene.
New research suggests children with ASD spend more time playing video games and watching TV than participating in social media and pre-social activities compared to their typically developing peers.
Vanderbilt researchers develop a humanoid robotic system to help teach autistic children to coordinate their attention with objects and other people in their environment.
