Metabolic Features Specific To The Autistic Brain Identified

An excess of metabolite intensity differences unique to the brains of individuals with autism spectrum disorder has been found by scientists from the Skoltech Center for Neurobiology and Brain Restoration (CNBR), the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai (ISMMS, New York, USA), the Max Planck Institute in Potsdam, and the Cologne Institute (Germany). The […]

Autism May Stem from Genetic Defect During Scaffolding Of Developing Brain

A gene mutation associated with autism spectrum disorders normally works to organize the scaffolding of brain cells called radial progenitors necessary for the orderly formation of the brain, report scientists from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine. The finding sheds light on the molecular details of a key process in brain […]
