Study reveals symptoms of autism can be detected within the first year of a child's life, and early detection can help with interventions that may significantly reduce the severity of lifelong developmental deviation.
According to a new study, gastrointestinal issues in children with autism could be a result of an increased reaction to stress.
A new method for obtaining mature neuronal cells from reprogrammed skin cells allows researchers to safely and effectively study diseases such as schizophrenia and autism.
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.
Researchers find that, compared with neurotypical children, those with autism have multiple redundant connections between neighboring brain areas at the expense of long-distance links.
A new gene expression study of the brains of those with autism is the largest of its kind.
Researchers report stress during fetal development and early childhood can have lasting implications for brain development, leading to increased risks of brain disorders later in life.
Exposure to air pollution in urban areas could trigger a toxic response in neurons and impact pathways associated with neurodegenerative diseases, researchers report.
Researchers report children with autism who are overly sensitive to sensory stimulation show different brain reactions to those with autism who don't respond so severely.
