Genetic variants that contribute to autism may also be involved in attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and Tourette syndrome, according to a new study.

Jacob Vorstman wants to help people who have rare mutations tied to autism, schizophrenia and other neurodevelopmental conditions set expectations about outcomes.
The first genetic analysis of multiple types of variants from people with autism or other neurodevelopmental conditions reveals hundreds of genes that may be linked to neurodevelopment.
Lowered expression of a gene called DDHD2 may increase a person’s likelihood of having autism, according to a new analysis.
Two new analyses help to explain why mutations to the chromosomal region 16p11.2 can lead to autism, intellectual disability or language difficulties.
Even as a small child, geneticist Elise Robinson wondered why people think the way they do. Today, that question informs much of her autism research.
Researchers have monitored the active genome in brain organoids over the course of nearly two years — and may find clues to autism’s roots.
Some of the inherited variants implicated in autism also increase the odds of schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, depression or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
A new resource details the genetic diversity of people in Asia and may shed light on genetic conditions such as autism.
