A new study reports the rise in autism diagnosis across the US is due, in part, to the reclassification of other intellectual disabilities which often co-occur with autism.
A new study finds that between ages 3 and 10, children with ASD exhibit distinct brain chemical changes which differ from children with developmental delays and those considered to undergo typical neurodevelopment.
The development of fine motor skill could take longer than previously thought, according to a new study.
Future research into the underlying causes of neurological disorders such as autism, epilepsy and schizophrenia, should greatly benefit from a first-of-its-kind atlas of gene-enhancers in the cerebrum (telencephalon). This new atlas identifies and locates thousands of gene-regulating elements in a region of the brain that is of critical importance for cognition, motor functions and emotion.
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.
A new study suggests children with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome may be misdiagnosed with autism due to the social impairments associated with their developmental delays.
Researchers discover IVF treatments for the most severe forms of male infertility are associated with an increased risk of neurodevelopmental disorders in children.
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.
Researchers identify two gene clusters in the brain linked to human intelligence.
Researchers have identified a new neurodevelopmental disorder. The study reveals the inherited disorder can produce learning difficulties and increase seizure risks. The researchers have implicated a recessive mutation in CAMK2A in this new disorder.
