Faulty Cell Signaling Derails Cerebral Cortex Development, Could It Lead to Autism?

ANTON_WNT_3.jpg

Eva Anton’s lab at UNC has shown how the deletion of the protein APC in progenitor cells – which give rise to neurons – disrupts the Wnt protein pathway, which previously was linked to genes associated with autism.

Research Provides Clues to Treat Depression, Autism and Other Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Alterations in a naturally occurring chemical in the brain called serotonin have been linked to a number of neuropsychiatric disorders including depression, anxiety and autism. Researchers are revealing critical insights into the mechanisms that can drive diminished serotonin signaling during development and in adulthood to provide new ways of treating several widespread neuropsychiatric disorders associated with perturbed serotonin signaling.

Artificial Intelligence Thinks Like People with Autism; Being Used to Develop Educational Tools

Vanderbilt Assistant Professor of Computer Science Maithilee Kunda figured out how to write code that emulates the kind of image-based thinking many people with autism report. The result is a form of artificial intelligence that allows researchers to study a model of human cognition.
