Mutations that affect a histone called H3.3 can lead to a neurodegenerative condition marked by developmental delay and congenital anomalies, according to a new study. Histones act as spools for DNA, making it possible to pack the strands of genetic material tightly within the nucleus. They also ser…

Fusing dissimilar spheres of neurons enables researchers to model the circuit differences seen in a genetic condition linked to autism, a new study shows. Merging the 3D clusters in a lab dish at will — “almost like Legos” — can reveal how defects arise as neural circuits form, says lead investigato…

Mutations in the gene DNMT3A disrupt how other genes are turned on and off, and can lead to a range of neurodevelopmental conditions, a study in mice has found. The results hint at how mutations in DNMT3A, seen in people with autism and a related condition called Tatton-Brown Rahman syndrome, interf…

Advances in genetic research have revealed that some mutations can lead to a wide array of outcomes. About 21 percent of people with deletions in the chromosomal region 22q11.2 have autism, for example, whereas about 41 percent have intellectual disability and 23 percent have schizophrenia. These pe…

Two unpublished studies detail improved methods for delivering gene therapies to the brain: One involves a type of stem cell that can produce gene-altering proteins on-site; the other taps an engineered virus to target neurons efficiently and noninvasively. Researchers presented the work virtually o…

Fragile X syndrome model mice perform poorly on a sensory task because their neurons cannot ‘tune in’ to the right information, according to a new unpublished study. The results could also explain why people with fragile X syndrome are often hypersensitive to sounds and touches. Researchers presente…

As we get more advanced technology in our daily lives, we see many possibilities that were once considered science fiction, the advent of artificial intelligence in everyday objects being a fine example of that. We are seeing AI embedded in products that we use regularly, making them smarter and imp…
