Autism Research: Retrospective Analysis of Clinical Records in 38 Cases of Recovery from Autism

38 Cases of Autism Recovery Studied in the Context of Intensive Applied Behavior Analysis

Research for Applied Behavior Analysis: An ongoing debate in the autism community is whether or not recovery is possible.  Researchers considered this idea in the context of early intervention with applied behavior analysis.  Their definition of recovery was achieving a level of functioning that makes it impossible to differentiate between an individual diagnosed with autism and their … [Read more...]

Autism Symptoms: A Microbial Association with Autism

Sutterella Bacteria Commonly Found in Autistic Individuals While Not Found in Controls

Autism Symptoms Research: Gastrointestinal symptoms such as constipation and diarrhea are often associated with autism.  However, it is still unknown how frequently such GI issues affect these individuals.  This may be due in part to insufficient knowledge in regard to the cause of the gastrointestinal symptoms found in autism.  A recent study identified a possible connection between GI … [Read more...]

Autism Genetics: Candidate-Gene Screening and Association Analysis at the Autism-Susceptibility Locus on Chromosome 16p: Evidence of Association at GRIN2A and ABAT

Autism Research Demonstrates a Relationship Between Autism and the Genes GRIN2A and ABAT

ABAT Gene and Autism Research: Many studies have demonstrated that genetics play a key role in autism.  Despite this evidence, researchers still have not identified a genetic variation that accounts for the majority of autism cases.  However, there have been several genes identified that may account for a small percentage of autism cases.  This 2005 genetic research focused on chromosome … [Read more...]

Autism Genetics: Familial Linkage between Neuropsychiatric Disorders and Intellectual Interests

Familial Linkage May Determine Intellectual Interests and Predisposition to Neuropsychiatric Disorders According to Study

Autism Genetics Research: Previous research suggests that brain function differences may largely be determined by genetics.  These differences in brain function may influence factors such as susceptibility to neuropsychiatric disorders.  The differences may also influence intellectual interests such as which college major to pursue.  A study attempted to determine the correlation between … [Read more...]
