A new method enables researchers to test algorithms for spotting genes that contribute to a trait or condition.
Mice that lack a segment of chromosome 22 — a mutation associated with autism — have unusually sparse connections between brain regions.
Many young autistic people with signs of emerging psychosis go without appropriate care.
Children in families with a history of brain conditions may be at increased odds of being autistic.
Certain repeated stretches of DNA that are linked to the expansion of the primate brain may also enhance autism traits.
A study of more than 5 million people reveals the onset and prevalence of nine diagnoses that often accompany autism.
Autism may be just as common among children missing a segment of chromosome 16 as it is in those with an extra copy.
An analysis of DNA from more than 20,000 people with autism identifies 12 regions in the genome that harbor inherited risk factors for the condition.
