SCN2A, a gene commonly associated with intellectual ability, plays an essential role in memory formation and replay, a new study reports.
Researchers explore the role postzygotic mosaic mutations play in the development of autism spectrum disorders.
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.
Researchers have found full genome sequencing by examining the entire DNA code of individuals with ASD and their families. The findings look at the wide range of genetic factors associated with ASD.
