Mayo Clinic ‘mini-brain’ study reveals possible key link to autism spectrum disorder

By Susan Murphy Susan Murphy (@susanmurphy)

Using human “mini-brain” models known as organoids, Mayo Clinic and Yale University scientists have discovered that the roots of autism spectrum disorder may be associated with an imbalance of specific neurons that play a critical role in how the brain communicates and functions. The specific cells are known as excitatory cortical neurons. The new study […]

Using brain organoids to uncover causes of neuropsychiatric disorders

By Colette Gallagher Colette Gallagher (@colettegallagher)

Mayo Clinic and Yale University collaborated in a study published in Science to create a new model for studying neuropsychiatric disorders in early human brain development. This unique collaboration brought together Mayo Clinic’s team-based, patient-centered research with Yale researchers to discover and analyze the genetic mechanisms that may cause these disorders. The Mayo Clinic team, […]

The Genome, Autism and More Genomes

By Jeff Briggs Jeff Briggs (@JeffreyBriggs)

In 2014, about one in every 68 children in the U.S. was diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum. A neurodevelopmental disorder often characterized by impaired social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and restricted and repetitive behavior, autism is known to have no single cause but it’s been known for some time that the disorder […]
