Why autism is more common in males

How brain wires up for better social behaviour decoded

Scientists have for the first time identified a way in which different parts of the brain don`t talk to each other very well in many people with autism and other neurodevelopmental disorders.

Genes responsible for autism disorders

Genetic screening of at-risk patients may lead to better diagnosis or treatment of autism, a study led by an Indian-origin researcher suggests.
