Older Fathers Don’t Necessarily Increase ASD Chance From Accumulated Mutations

Autism1-685x320

For every few studies showing evidence that something leads to autism, there is always a study floating around with research disproving previous beliefs of possible ASD triggers. Recent research, stemming from Australia’s University of Queensland, focused on the long-studied idea of older fathers and their risk of giving birth to a child on the autism […]

Brain Microtubules Can Stand Independently. Source: Science Daily

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 […]

Alpha and Beta Brainwaves Differ for ASD   

Brainwaves are key aspects in relaying information throughout the body, as well as to doctors about how a person’s brain is functioning. A recent study has found differences between two types brainwaves in people with autism spectrum disorder.   In the brain of someone with ASD, less alpha and beta brainwaves are present than people […]
