Channel markers: The cerebral cortex of mice with two mutated copies of SCN2A (bottom) has fewer sodium channels (green) than that of control mice (top). Some mutations in SCN2A, a gene reliably linked to autism, change the social behavior of mice by dampening the electrical activity of their neurons, according to a new study. SCN2A […]

An analysis of entire genome sequences from thousands of families – one of the largest studies of its kind to date – has linked 163 new genes to autism. The study appeared in Nature Genetics today. The newly linked genes harbor extremely rare inherited genetic variants – changes in the genome that were passed on […]

New neighbors: transplanted immature inhibitory cells (red) surround a mature neuron (dark gray); the new cells appear to prevent signal imbalance in mice lacking a copy of the autism-related FOXG1 gene. Mice lacking a copy of the autism-related gene FOXG1 in the brain have atypical social behavior and an imbalance in excitatory and inhibitory signals, […]
