Researchers pinpoint the role of the Arl13b gene in the formation and proper placement of neurons during brain development.
A study shows another family of proteins linked to neurodevelopmental disorders regulates the function of neuroligins and neurexins in order to suppress the development of inhibitory synapses.
Pets could prove to be a helpful addition to treatment programs designed to help children with Autism to improve their social skills, a new study reports.
A study in Nature Neuroscience reveals mutations that occur after conception could play an important role in autism. The study reports post-zygotic mutations occur disproportionately in genes expressed in the amygdala in those on the autism spectrum.
Immune system activation of the mother during pregnancy can disrupt neurodevelopment in her offspring, a new study shows.
Researchers discover children with sensory processing disorder have quantifiable differences in brain structure. The finding shows a biological basis for the disorder which sets it apart from other neurodevelopmental disorders.
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.
According to researchers, even before a preterm infant is born, they may have alterations in the brain's neural networks that could contribute to neurodevelopmental disorders.
The development of fine motor skill could take longer than previously thought, according to a new study.
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.
New research suggests environmental exposure to bisphenol A (BPA), a chemical commonly found in plastics and resins, could suppress a gene critical to nerve cell function and the development of the central nervous system. Exposure to BPA could predispose humans to a number of neurodevelopmental and other health disorders.
