Imbalanced Characteristics: Animals with mutated ADNP have motor difficulties that are more pronounced in female mice. Photography by Rick Dahms Mice with a mutation in an autism-related gene called ADNP show gender-specific changes in gene expression, behavior, and other traits, a new study shows. The mice can mimic some of the traits seen in humans […]

Social Studies: Mice in the autism model have atypical social behavior, possibly due to the way their brain processes the feeling of “self”.

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 […]
