The stubborn lack of treatments for fragile X syndrome — a leading cause of inherited intellectual disability and autism — is spurring researchers to revise clinical trial techniques and revisit old drug candidates.The post Finding a path forward for fragile X drugs appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research News.…
 
The possibility of microbial treatments for autism has inspired a burst of research and nascent clinical trials, but new research suggests these efforts rest on shaky scientific ground.The post Despite flurry of findings, doubts dog gut microbes’ role in autism appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research News.…
 
Fallout over two recent studies highlights the potential power of social media to shape science, and the shifting dynamics between researchers and the autistic community.The post Backlash from autistic community pauses research, exposes communication gaps appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research News.…
 
For 40 years, the preponderance of autism research has focused on understanding the causes and characteristics of the condition rather than testing assessments or interventions in community settings.The post Autism research continues to stress basic science over improving interventions appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research News.…
 
Autistic people have a higher-than-average chance of developing a neurodegenerative condition, according to a few studies. Some scientists are searching for proof — work that could also improve care for older autistic adults. The post "The search for a link between autism and neurodegenerative conditions appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research…
 
Some types of restricted and repetitive behaviors become more prevalent among autistic children and teenagers over time, depending on their age and intellectual ability, whereas others decrease. The post Repetitive behaviors wax and wane among autistic youth appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research News.…
 
Spontaneous genetic mutations contribute to autism in 30 to 39 percent of all people with the condition, and 52 to 67 percent of autistic children whose siblings do not also have the condition. The post "Analysis ups estimate of spontaneous mutations’ role in autism" appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Research News…
 
In 2012, geneticist Santhosh Girirajan boarded a plane in Seattle, where he had just finished a postdoctoral fellowship at the University of Washington. On the plane, he cracked open a book he had received as a going-away present: “Time, Love, Memory,” the story of biologist Seymour Benzer’s Nobel Prize-winning discoveries about sleep and circadian…
 
Studies of autism subtypes rarely validate their results, and this has led to a proliferation of autism subtypes of questionable utility. But reliable subtyping can help improve the prognosis for and care of autistic people. The post "Validating autism subtypes: A crucial but often overlooked step in research" appeared first on Spectrum | Autism Re…
