Genetic body/brain connection identified in genomic region linked to autism.

Identifying relevant genetic interactions contributing to neurodevelopmental disorders is a huge challenge facing the field.  Now, a study from researchers at the Whitehead Institute identifies a direct link between deletions in two genes, namely fam57ba and doc2a, and brain-body traits, such as seizures, hyperactivity, enlarged head size, and obesity.  The team state their findings point to future analyses addressing the
