Brainhack conferences offer talks and hands-on tutorials, and unite small groups of interdisciplinary researchers to work on open-source neuroscience projects.
Reports of flaws in imaging research are signs of a maturing field, experts say, not a devastating blow to its results.
Autistic children with sensory issues show more intense physiological reactions to unpleasant sounds and other sensations than their non-autistic peers do, a new study shows.
Spectrum spoke with three Black scientists about why they got into autism research, what keeps them excited about their work and how the field could become more diverse.
Infusions of the hormone oxytocin may make mice that model autism more social by normalizing their brain activity patterns.
Connections between the cerebellum and brain networks do not seem to contribute substantially to the emergence of autism traits.
An fMRI scan can reconstruct a picture from a person’s brain activity, but that image changes depending on a person’s attention.
