People with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) gain different perceptions from peoples' faces as the way they gather information - not the judgement process itself - is different from those without the disorder, says a study.
In a new study, scientists have found that children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) were likelier to have been exposed to high level of certain air toxics while they were in their mothers' womb and in the first 2 years of life.
Scientists have discovered that eating broccoli, packed with a health-boosting compound called `sulphoraphane`, helps improve some social and behavioural problems in people suffering from symptoms of autism spectrum disorders.
Low levels of joint attention - the act of making eye contact with another person to share an experience - without a positive affective component (a smile) in the first year is linked to high risk of autism disorder, says a study.
A new study has suggested that the oxytocin receptor, a gene known to influence mother-infant bonding and pair bonding in monogamous species, also plays a special role in the ability to remember faces.
Researchers have claimed that problems with a key group of enzymes called topoisomerases could have profound effects on the genetic machinery behind development of brain and potentially lead to autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
A simple “pull-to-sit” task could be added to existing developmental screenings at pediatric well visits to improve early detection of developmental delays, suggested researchers at the Kennedy Krieger Institute.
