A new reference genome includes sequences collected from people around the globe, plugging major gaps in the current one.
Emerging tools and techniques that may advance autism research.
A new analysis of nearly 40,000 people pinpoints 48 genetic variants that may determine the volume of certain brain areas.
A new technique uses ultrasound instead of light to detect gene expression in cells.
A new technique allows researchers to transplant human microglia into mouse brains and better study the association between these cells and autism.
A new method scans gene expression in live cells and could help scientists study autism genes.
A new technique lets researchers watch brain circuits as they’re being built, starting from the individual neurons birth.
A new resource that traces individual neurons in the mouse brain may reveal how distant brain regions communicate.
A new method uses mutations in DNA to maintain a detailed record of series of cellular events.
A new study supports the view that songbirds offer a good model to study speech learning in autistic children.
A novel implant that delivers complex combinations of drugs and light to mouse brains may uncover the pathways that underlie repetitive behaviors in autistic people.
