Literature Review and Meta-Analysis Analyzes How DSM-5 Diagnostic Criteria For Autism May Affect Diagnosis Rate

Columbia University Irving Medical Center

A five-year follow-up systematic review and meta-analysis of 33 studies—conducted to determine changes in the frequency of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis since the publication of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual 5 (DSM-5)—was published in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders.

Some Children Can “Recover” From Autism, but Problems Often Remain

Albert Einstein College of Medicine

Research in the past several years has shown that children can outgrow a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), once considered a lifelong condition. In a new study, researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Health System have found that the vast majority of such children still have difficulties that require therapeutic and educational support. The study was published online today in the Journal of Child Neurology.

UNH Researchers Identify Role Gender-Biased Protein May Play in Autism

University of New Hampshire

Researchers at the University of New Hampshire are one step closer to helping answer the question of why autism is four times more common in boys than in girls after identifying and characterizing the connection of certain proteins in the brain to autism spectrum disorders (ASD).

Study Finds Atypical Communications in Autism May Aid Diagnosis, Treatment Targets

Stony Brook University

Stony Brook University autism researchers investigating atypical communications characteristics of children being treated for autism spectrum disorder (ASD) found that these youths experience a wider range of communication difficulties compared to youth with other psychiatric conditions.

Prenatal vitamin intake may reduce autism recurrence in high-risk families

UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center

High-risk younger siblings of children with autism are less likely to be diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), have significantly lower autism symptom severity, and higher cognitive scores if their mothers take maternal prenatal vitamins during their first month of pregnancy, UC Davis research has found.

Children on the Autism Spectrum with Co-Occurring ADHD Symptoms Lag Behind in Key Measures of Independence and Communication

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A pair of new studies has provided new insight into the challenges faced by children on the autism spectrum who exhibit symptoms of attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). According to the findings from researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), these children have difficulty with adaptive behavior, a key measure of independence.

Mapping Brain Circuits in Newborns May Aid Early Detection of Autism

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

A new map of newborn babies’ brains offers details of structure that will provide a new reference for researchers studying both typical brain development and neurological disorders. Using noninvasive, 20-minute MRI scans, researchers have revealed some of the complex and precisely organized brain architecture that emerges as the brain reshapes itself during the third trimester of pregnancy.

Human Brain Protein Associated with Autism Confers Abnormal Behavior in Fruit Flies

University of Alabama at Birmingham

A mutant gene for a brain protein in a child with autism has been placed into the brains of fruit flies. Fruit flies hosting that gene produce the variant human brain protein and show abnormal behaviors of fear, repetitive activity and altered social interaction, reminiscent of autism impairments.
