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.
