Brain Protein Mutation From Child with Autism Causes Autism-Like Behavioral Changes in Mice

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A de novo gene mutation that encodes a brain protein in a child with autism has been placed into the brains of mice. These mice then showed severe alterations of specific behaviors that closely resemble those seen in human autism spectrum disorder, or ASD.

Study Looks at Stem Cells for Answers to How a Type of Autism Develops

Ann and Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago

The lab of Yongchao Ma, PhD, from Stanley Manne Children’s Research Institute at Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, discovered how the genetic defect in fragile X syndrome – a type of autism – delays production of neurons (nerve cells) at a critical time in the embryo’s brain development. In a study published in Cell Reports, Dr. Ma and colleagues describe a previously unknown regulatory mechanism controlling how stem cells differentiate into neurons. They identified early disruptions in this process in fragile X syndrome, the most common inherited intellectual disability in children.

The Neuroscience of Autism: New Clues to the Condition's Beginnings

University of North Carolina School of Medicine

UNC School of Medicine scientists unveiled how a particular gene helps organize the scaffolding of brain cells called radial progenitors necessary for the orderly formation of the brain. Previous studies have shown that this gene is mutated in people with autism.

Study: Eyes hold clues for treating severe autism more effectively

University of Vermont

In a new study, researchers demonstrate that assessment tools capturing implicit signs of word knowledge among those with severe autism can be more accurate than traditional assessments of vocabulary, pointing the way toward better inventions and potentially spurring much needed new research.
