A new study finds children with autism see simple movements twice as quickly as their non-autistic peers. This hypersensitivity to motion could provide clues to one of the fundamental causes of autism.
Researchers find the infant brain does not control its blood flow in the same way as the adult brain. The findings could change the way researchers study brain development in infants and children.

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.

According to a new study, statins could help treat Rett Syndrome.
A new study examines the role paternal aging may play in the development of neurodevelopmental disorders in offspring with an inherited genetic mutation of Pax6.
Researchers report there may be a molecular placental pathway that allows females to be more resilient to maternal stress.
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.
