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 note marked improvements in young autistic boys when using a treatment known as sensory-motor or environmental enrichment.
When manipulated in two lines of transgenic mice, neuroligin 1, a gene linked to ASD, produced mature adults with irreversible defects which affected either learning or social interaction. The findings could have implications for potential gene therapies for autism.
Researchers provide new evidence for the severity of motor, intellectual and speech impairments in Phelan-McDermid Syndrome, a sub-type of autism characterized by a mutation of the SHANK3 gene.
Researchers discover IVF treatments for the most severe forms of male infertility are associated with an increased risk of neurodevelopmental disorders in children.
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.
Drawing on more than 30 years of research, a new study reports no association between pre-natal exposure to low levels of mercury and ASD in offspring.
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.
According to a new study, children with autism and average IQs consistently demonstrate better math skills than their non-autistic peers with a similar IQ range.
