Cell Service: Parent reports suggest stem cell therapy may have reduced their children’s autism characteristics, but experts remain skeptical. Cavan Images / Getty Images Unknown financial conflicts of interest and a lack of adequate clarification affect a new study that injected four autistic children with stem cells from their own bone marrow, bioethicists say. The […]

Map Quest: Two types of neurons (cortical, top; thalamus, bottom) from different organoid batches are mapped onto a reference view of the developing mouse brain. Dark colors indicate a high degree of similarity between the organoid-derived neurons and the reference map. A new tool is helping researchers study the types of cells that make up […]

Mutations in TSC2, a gene linked to autism and a related condition called tuberous sclerosis complex, cause developing neurons to ignore chemical cues that help them connect, a new study suggests. The results could explain the altered wiring patterns observed in the brains of people with such mutations. TSC2 mutations disrupt the formation of axons, […]

Disorganized scaffolds: Immature brain cells from mutant CUL3 mice have a disordered cytoskeleton (right) compared to controls (left). Mutations in CUL3, a leading autism gene, can disrupt the movement of neurons during development and disrupt the precise assembly of the brain, suggests a new study. Correcting this misdirection could lead to therapy for autism in […]
