Research summary Analysis of the proteins in the stool of autistic children revealed altered levels of specific gut microbes and enzymes that metabolize carbohydrates. Journal of Proteomics Two commercially available wireless heart rate trackers are convenient and reliable for use with autistic children. Autism research Nutritional problems in children, especially those that persist into the […]

Subdued response: Organoids with microglia (bottom) show a lower interferon response (red) than organoids without microglia (top), suggesting that these immune cells help reduce cell stress. Adding non-neural brain cells called microglia to cortical organoids speeds up the rate of maturation of their neurons, increases the synchronization of their firing, and appears to reduce cellular […]

Immune response: rats exposed to certain antibodies in the womb have the molecules (green) in their brain. Courtesy Matthew Bruce / UC Davis Prenatal exposure to maternal antibodies can contribute to autism in different ways, depending on the antibodies involved, new unpublished studies suggest. Two research teams presented the results virtually at the Society for […]

Verónica Martínez-Cerdeño professor, University of California, Davis Studying post-mortem brain tissue from people with autism is critical to understanding the cellular and molecular changes associated with the disease. But this rare resource lacks diversity: most of the brains donated to science come from people of Western European ancestry. Cultural and linguistic barriers, as well as […]

Brain Boost: Electrical stimulation of the fornix weakened abnormal inhibitory signals in mice with CDKL5 mutations and restored their performance in learning and memory tasks. Manjurul / iStock Chronic electrical stimulation of the fornix, a bundle of nerve fibers deep in the brain, saves learning and memory deficits in mice with mutations in the autism-linked […]

Research summary Autistic people experience more stress in the course of their adult lives than non-autistic people, and people in poor physical or mental health are most affected. Health psychology People with autism are, on average, just as adept at a study task as people without prediction; The predictive ability correlates with the ratio of […]

Your browser does not support the video tag. Break A new imaging technique detects neurons that fire almost simultaneously across large parts of the brain tissue in living mice. The method could help researchers understand how extensive networks of neurons communicate and how these patterns differ between wild-type mice and mouse models of autism. According […]

Biomarker Bias: Brainwave patterns in autistic boys, but not autistic girls, appear to correlate with traits. Engagementstock / Shutterstock Autistic children show a distinct pattern of resting brain activity, and how that pattern relates to behavior differs between autistic boys and girls, according to a new study. Previous analysis suggests that characteristics of autism differ […]

Early maturity: Compared to wild-type mouse neurons (left), those in mice with a mutation in the MYT1L gene (right) mature before they can reproduce, which leads to an above-average brain.

X-tra effects: Brain regions with an overly large influence of the X chromosome (yellow) support functions such as attention, decision-making as well as sensory and motor skills. The X chromosome has a more than expected genetic influence on the structure of several brain regions, a new study shows. The X-linked genes that may underlie this […]
