Hereditary forces that have evolved over millions of years favor mate selection and reproduction in the early years of male sexual maturity at the expense of longer-term well-being. This may explain why females tend to live longer and are less vulnerab…
A new picture book with step-by-step instructions on how to do basic exercises like jumping jacks, helps increase levels of physical activity in young people with ASD.
Using machine learning to analyze blood samples, researchers have identified a group of new biomarkers that could lead to early diagnosis of autism.
From microdosing to improve cognition to treating a range of mental health disorders, researchers evaluate the rise in the use of psychedelics and their potential as medicines.
Study identifies a neural pathway associated with error monitoring and attention function in some psychiatric disorders such as ADHD, ASD, and schizophrenia. Researchers say the pathway could be modulated with the help of transcranial magnetic stimulat…
Measuring fetal head growth during pregnancy could help doctors identify which children are at risk of ASD. Researchers found fetuses with narrower heads during mid-gestation are more likely to be diagnosed with autism during childhood. The head develo…
A genetic mutation linked to autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders was associated with marked sleep disorders in fruit fly models. The findings add to the evidence that sleep disruptions are linked to early neurodevelopmental processes.
A new mathematical approach is able to predict the severity of autism traits from brain activity data.
Study reveals the disruptions in prenatal neurogenesis can increase the risk of autism spectrum disorder. Findings also reveal estrogen can protect against the disruption of neurogenesis and steer the embryonic brain on the course of normal development.
Inactivating a gene associated with ASD in young songbirds prevents them from forming memories to actively reproduce their fathers’ songs.
