A new study led by researchers at Indiana University and Rutgers University provides the strongest evidence yet that nearly imperceptible changes in how people move can be used to diagnose neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism.

CWRU School of Medicine Researcher Receives NIH Grants to Uncover Connection between Abnormal Embryonic Brain Development and Autism

One hypothesis for how autism develops is excessive neuron production in the prenatal period, leading to a transient but significant increase in brain size in the first few years of life in about one-quarter of children with the disease. But the precise timing and cause of this overgrowth is poorly understood. Seeking to help solve this mystery, Tony Wynshaw-Boris, MD, PhD, has received two five-year grants totaling more than $5 million from the National Institute of Mental Health of the National Institutes of Health to uncover links between abnormal embryonic brain development and autism.

Scientists Identify First Brain Cells That Respond to Sound

A new study is the first to identify a mechanism that could explain an early link between sound input and cognitive function, often called the “Mozart effect.”
