Human geneticists have discovered that a region of the genome associated with autism contains genetic variation that evolved in the last 250,000 years, after the divergence of humans from ancient … Continue Reading Geneticists ‘date’ genetic variation associated with autism.
Gene variants implicated in ADHD identify attention and language deficits in the general population.
A new study from researchers at Cardiff University and the University of Bristol suggests that there is a spectrum of attention, hyperactivity/impulsiveness and language function in society, with varying degrees … Continue Reading Gene variants implicated in ADHD identify attention and language deficits in the general population.
Scientists at The Scripps Research Institute (TSRI) have discovered that a gene mutation linked to hereditary spastic paraplegia, a disabling neurological disorder, interferes with the normal breakdown of triglyceride fat … Continue Reading Scripps Research Institute scientists shed light on cause of spastic paraplegia.
