Spontaneous mutations in “non-coding” regions of the genome have been linked to autism, according to a new study. The work strongly supports the idea that the genetic roots of autism lie not only in […]

Seeing stars: Mice that were exposed to an immune response before birth have high levels of inflammatory molecules in their astrocytes. Pregnant mice that have been treated to build an immune response have pups that display autism-like behavior and altered immune cells, according to a new study. Injecting immune cells from other mice into adult […]
