Growth spurt: An autism-linked mutation shifts the balance of excitatory (pink) and inhibitory (green) neurons during development. Mutations in three genes strongly associated with autism shift the pace at which certain inhibitory and excitatory neurons develop, according to a study published today in Nature. The findings reveal a novel point of convergence by which the […]

Subdued response: Organoids with microglia (bottom) show a lower interferon response (red) than organoids without microglia (top), suggesting that these immune cells help reduce cell stress. Adding non-neural brain cells called microglia to cortical organoids speeds up the rate of maturation of their neurons, increases the synchronization of their firing, and appears to reduce cellular […]

Research summary People with FOXP1 syndrome, which is characterized by intellectual retardation and developmental delay, may also have autism, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and anxiety. Molecular Autism Pairs of twins in which one twin is autistic had more obstetric complications than non-autistic twins, according to a new meta-analysis, although complicated births and autism may have […]

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 […]
