Mutation Map: Gene expression and DNA accessibility profiles of cells in the developing cerebral cortex can help scientists assess the effects of rare non-coding mutations in autism. DR. J. Andersen / Pasca Laboratory at Stanford University A new atlas profiles gene expression and DNA accessibility in individual cells in the developing human cerebral cortex during […]

Some mutations that disable SCN2A, one of the genes most closely linked to autism, can make neurons unexpectedly hyperexcitable, a study in mice shows. The results could help explain why a significant proportion of autistic children with mutations in SCN2A have epileptic seizures. SCN2A codes for Nav1.2, a sodium ion channel that helps transmit electrical […]

Mapping of neurons: BARseq2 can track neuronal pathways and at the same time measure gene expression within cells. In this mouse brain slice, each point represents the location of a unique mRNA molecule and each color represents a different gene. Courtesy of Xiaoyin Chen A new method can map the pathways of thousands of neurons […]
