Researchers report they have discovered a gene involved in forming synapses.
Researchers find exposure to air pollution appears to increase the risk of developing autism in those which a specific genetic disposition to the disorder.
Different Gene Expression in Male and Female Brains May Help Explain Sex Differences in Brain Disorder
A new study reveals that there are widespread differences in how genes are expressed in male and female brains.
Researchers discover abnormalities in cortical projection neurons during the development of the prefrontal cortex are a significant factor in the emergence of autism.
The neurons in the amygdala of ASD patients have reduced sensitivity to the eye region of other people’s faces, a new study reports.
Researchers develop a novel system to image worm brain activity. The new technology makes it possible for researchers to study the neural circuitry and genetics associated with animal behavior.
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.
Researchers discover a surprising degree of variation among the genomes of individual neurons taken from the same brain.
A gene implicated in human speech disorders and epilepsy is also required for vocalization and synapse formation in mice, researchers discover.
