A new study reports autism risks appear to be attributed to maternal depression during pregnancy, and not antidepressant medications as previously believed.
Two new NIH grants will allow researchers to combine neuroimaging techniques to better explore autism.
According to a new study, children with autism have an excess of synapses in the brain, due to a slowdown of the normal pruning process during development.
Researchers report on a new technique which identifies genetic mutations that cause brain malformation.
A new study investigates why autism potentially occurs, develops and results in a diversity of symptoms.
UCSF has completed the first internet based clinical trial for children with autism.
Researchers discover OGT, an enzyme in the placenta, translates maternal stress into a reprogramming signal for the brain before birth.
Researchers describe how early life exposure to air pollution produces significant brain changes, including enlargement of the part of the brain seen in humans with autism and schizophrenia.
According to a new study, children who late develop autism are exposed to elevated levels of steroid hormones while in the womb.
New research could help explain how some cases of ASD can result from environmental influences rather than genetic mutations.
A new study links agenesis of the corpus callosum with high incidences of autism.
According to a new study, oxytocin appears to increase social behaviors in newborn rhesus monkeys.
A new study suggests mutations in a specific gene which is disrupted in some individuals with autism results in too much growth throughout the brain.
Researchers reveal proteins involved in autism interact with more partners than previously thought.
Abnormal lipid levels in the brain can affect the interaction between neural networks in early prenatal brain development. Researchers believe this could be a trigger for autism.
