MHCI, an immune system protein, could play an unexpected role in Autism and Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports.
A new study reports autism symptoms develop by the age of 18 months in 57% of children who have an older sibling with ASD.
Sulforaphane, a chemical derived from broccoli sprouts, could help improve behavioral and social problems associated with ASD, a new study reports.
Researchers present a new hypothesis that autism might be rooted in an impaired ability to predict events or other people's reactions.
Researchers show how inflammation in pregnant mice can trigger excessive division of neural stem cells in their offspring. This can result in an overgrowth of the brain and autism like behaviors.
Researchers suggest measuring how fast the brain responds to sounds and sights may help with earlier diagnosis of ASD.
A new study reports by deleting the NrCAM gene, researchers believe they have found a potential way to prune back the neural connections implicated in ASD.

A new study links Jacobsen syndrome, a rare genetic disease, with autism.
Researchers discover antagonistic neuron populations in the amygdala of mice which controls whether the animals engage in social behavior or asocial repetitive self grooming.
Researchers report estrogen receptor beta is significantly decreased in the brain of people with autism.
Researchers theorize early damage to the cerebellum can hinder neurodevelopment and could be a possible root of autism.
A new study reports autism risks appear to be attributed to maternal depression during pregnancy, and not antidepressant medications as previously believed.
Researchers have determined the detailed structure and movement of the glutamate receptor.
Two new NIH grants will allow researchers to combine neuroimaging techniques to better explore autism.
