People with autism often suffer from gut problems, but nobody has known why. Researchers have now discovered the same gene mutations – found both in the brain and the gut – could be the cause.
Researchers found differences in cells types between 16 regions of the brain during development may be key in determining whether genetic risks translate into disorders like ASD, schizophrenia or bipolar disorder.
Psychologist Inna Fishman’s research indicates the presence of biological markers in the brain in children with autism.
A study has uncovered a brain-signaling pathway that can be pharmacologically manipulated in mice to reverse an autism-related pathway.
