Abnormal activation of parvalbumin neurons in the young mouse auditory cortex manifests as a result of maternal neglect.
Report supports earlier studies linking acetaminophen exposure in utero with a higher risk of later diagnosis of ADHD and ASD.
Acute inflammation of the anterior cerebellum resulted in depression-like symptoms in rodent models. Suppressing microglia helped reduce hyperexcitability and symptoms of depression.
Researchers report the brain can learn to compensate for language processing problems in adults with autism.
Researchers report adults with ASD have diminished neural response to hearing their own names. The study reports those diagnosed with autism display diminished activity in the right temporoparietal junction, an area of the brain associated with the processing self-other distinction.
Researchers have developed a new machine learning algorithm that can identify clusters of learning difficulties which did not match the previous diagnosis children had been given.
Researchers report the neural code of the prefrontal cortex is more efficient than the amygdala in both humans and primates. The lower resistance of the amygdala to errors in humans may play a role in exaggerated survival responses, such as those seen in anxiety and PTSD.
Researchers are studying the brain activity of adults with ASD to better understand the cognitive changes that occur across aging in adulthood.
A new study reports mitochondrial changes may be important risk factors for identifying those with autism spectrum disorders.
