Three studies presented at SfN Neuroscience 2019 reveal advancements in autism research that could improve intervention and treatment.
By manipulating molecular models, researchers discover protein that could accelerate recovery from peripheral nerve injury.
For the first time in living animals, researchers have tracked the movement and functional activity of neurons as they wired together into circuits and discovered that motor neurons are the first to send signals.
In the largest study of its kind, researchers discovered that testosterone does not impair cognitive empathy, challenging the notion of autism as reflecting an ‘extreme male brain’.
Researchers have developed ’mini-brains’ with optimized cellular network activity, which exhibit similar electrical impulse patterns observed in premature infants.
In this Editorial, published in the journal Future Neurology, the author discusses the need for continued funding for spinal muscular atrophy.
New research suggests that exosomes could play an important role in brain circuits, cell signaling and cell communication.
New results from the NURTURE study have demonstrated that pre-symptomatic infants treated with Spinraza® achieved motor milestones not seen before.
A recent study has determined a connection between reduced redundant synapses of autism spectrum disorder mouse brains and exercise. This could offer a possibility of reversing behavioral defects seen in autism spectrum disorder.
