Social skills: Tendencies to engage in groom soliciting, solitary play or sitting alone are highly heritable among macaques. Courtesy of Emory University / Marie Collantes Some aspects of rhesus macaques’ social behavior are strongly shaped by genetics, with differences tied to variants in autism-linked genes, according to a new study. The findings may shed light […]

Little lag: Autistic children with language regression begin speaking in phrases at about the same age as those without regression. Pixel Effect / iStock Autistic children who show language regression — a loss of language skills in early childhood — do not necessarily have communication problems later on, a new study finds. In fact, in […]

People with mutations in the PAX5 gene have a distinct neurodevelopmental syndrome characterized by a range of traits, including developmental delay, intellectual disability, seizures and autism, according to a new study of 16 children and young adults. Until now, genetic testing did not give people with PAX5 mutations clear answers about their development, says lead […]

Stacked effects: A gene mutation and immune stimulation together can render mice less social. Photography by Richard Drury Activating the immune system blunts social behaviors in mice missing a copy of the autism-linked gene SHANK3, according to a new study. But blocking TRPV4, a gene that encodes an ion channel involved in inflammatory responses, can […]

Lack of isolation: Mutations in the MYT1L gene deactivate a transcription factor that is important for myelin-forming cells that coat nerve fibers. Biophoto Associates / Science Source A variety of traits, including developmental delay and intellectual disability, characterize people with mutations in the autism-related MYT1L gene, according to a new study. The gene encodes a […]

Voice connection: Zebra finches and other birds that learn songs carry mutations near genes that are often mutated in autism. Courtesy Lomax Boyd Genes that appear to play a role in song learning in some birds are often mutated in autistic people, according to a new study. The results show the value of studying the […]
