A new method for examining blobs of neurons known as ‘mini-brains’ reveals structures like those in the human brain.
Rare or common, inherited or spontaneous, mutations form the core of autism risk.
Mutations in a gene called TRIP12 — which is involved in tagging proteins for destruction — can lead to intellectual disability, language delay and autism.
Watch the complete replay of Michael Platt’s webinar discussing monkey models for autism.
A new atlas maps the locations of nearly 30,000 noncoding RNAs — genetic strips that may modify the expression of genes.
An understudied chemical modification that influences gene expression is abundant in the brains of people with autism.
A new technique offers a fast, versatile way to measure gene expression in thousands of cells at once.
Manipulating pathways that help silence the X chromosome may help treat Rett syndrome, a condition closely related to autism.
Children who carry certain rare mutations linked to autism learn to walk late — but have less severe social and language difficulties than do other children with the condition.
