New Study at UCLA Shows a Common Signature of Gene Activity in Brains of People with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

A new study at UCLA shows that despite differences across people with autism, they show a common signature of gene activity. These findings were possible through the Autism BrainNet which provided over 250 brain samples to the study. The results validate earlier results of a common neural signature in autism, focused primarily on genes associated with how cells develop and communicate with each other. It also reiterates the need for early intervention for symptoms, when possible. Read more here.
