An iPhone app that screens for signs of autism in young children was found to be scientifically reliable, easy to use and supported by caregivers, according to a study.
Autism prevalence rises to 1 in 59 children
The prevalence of autism has been raised to 1 in 59 children by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in tracking of 11 communities across the country.
Autism linked to defects in a nuclear receptor
Two scientists from University of Houston (UH) are reporting that defects in a portion of the brain's hippocampus, called the dentate gyrus, is regulated by the nuclear receptor LXRβ (Liver X receptor Beta).
Autism affects ability to smell fear
The lack of ability to ‘smell fear’ may reveal clues about behavior and brain development in people with autism, a new study found.
In autism, too many brain connections may be at root of condition
A defective gene linked to autism influences how neurons connect and communicate with each other in the brain, according to a study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Rodents that lack the gene form too many connections between brain neurons and have difficulty learning.
People with autism offer employers a broader talent pool

Autism more common in people whose brains are anatomically more male-like
A new study finds that in addition to autism being more common in males than females, differences in brain structure can also be a factor, regardless of biological sex. It suggests that having a brain with features more commonly found in male brains is linked to higher probability of having autism spectrum disorder.
