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.
For the first time, researchers have revealed that autism could result from mutations in the noncoding regions of the human genome.
In this interview, we spoke with Alysson Muotri about defining cell maturity in brain organoids and how we could address the challenges with these systems.
Neonatologists have determined that there may be links between disruption of placental allopregnanolone delivery to the fetus and brain injuries associated with autism.
Researchers have demonstrated that cerebral organoids grown at the air–liquid interface are able to generate nerve tracts and stimulate muscle output; these could be used to improve understanding of neurological diseases such as dementia.
