Microtubes

The brain biochemistry is the centerpiece for the majority of most neurodevelopmental disorder research, including autism. Neurons, brain tissue, the interaction between lobes, it can all provide vital new information on these types of disorders. The most recent study focused on tracking down the issue of mislocated neurons.

Researchers Develop New Method For ASD Mutation Isolation

Mice continue to be in the spotlight for scientific research. Autism researchers used mice, yet again, as test subjects to isolate mutations found in the base of autism diagnosis. Researchers recently ran studies to sequence whole genomes found in the neurons of mice they created through stem cells. With this data, the researchers were able […]
