A new Caltech study suggests that specific changes in an overactive immune system can indeed contribute to autism-like behaviors in mice, and that in some cases, this activation can be related to what a developing fetus experiences in the womb.
Researchers have developed a neurodevelopmental model of Williams syndrome that may provide insights into the neurobiology of the social brain.
A new study reveals 70 percent of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders, and who have a history of severe language delay, achieved fluent speech by the age of eight.
NKAP-related syndrome, a newly identified neurodevelopmental disorder caused by mutations in the NKPA gene, causes developmental delays, intellectual disabilities, behavioral abnormalities, and musculoskeletal problems in children.
