Human microbiota transplant transfers autism phenotype to mice.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects an estimated one in 59 people in the United States, causing adverse social communication and repetitive behavior. Many factors, including genetic and environmental effects, are … Continue Reading Human microbiota transplant transfers autism phenotype to mice.

Study identifies autism gene which regulates dendrite development to slow down brain communication.

The development of neural connectivity is essential for brain function, and disruption of this process is associated with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).  Now, a study from researchers led by McMaster … Continue Reading Study identifies autism gene which regulates dendrite development to slow down brain communication.

Study identifies cause of dendritic pruning defect linked to autism and schizophrenia.

Memories are formed at structures in the brain known as dendritic spines which communicate with other brain cells via synapses. It is known that the number of these brain connections … Continue Reading Study identifies cause of dendritic pruning defect linked to autism and schizophrenia.

Neuroimaging study identifies new biomarker for autism spectrum disorder in boys.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is marked by social disability and is associated with dysfunction in brain circuits supporting social-cue perception. The degree to which neural functioning reflects individual-level behavioural phenotype … Continue Reading Neuroimaging study identifies new biomarker for autism spectrum disorder in boys.

Study identifies neurogenetics that link abnormal neurodevelopment to ASD.

Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) are a group of highly inheritable behavioural disorders. Patients with ASD have mild to severe communication difficulties, repetitive behaviour and social challenges. Such disorders significantly challenge … Continue Reading Study identifies neurogenetics that link abnormal neurodevelopment to ASD.
