Scientists Latest Research That Autism Linked to Zinc Deficiency in Childhood

While the exact cause of autism is unknown, its development in children has been linked to various genetic and environmental factors—including zinc deficiency. It is still not clear whether this deficiency contributes to autism, but scientists have defined a possible mechanism for how this could work, according to a paper published in Frontiers in Molecular Neuroscience. For their study, the researchers demonstrated how zinc shapes the connections, or synapses, between brain cells (neurons) that form during early development…

Scientists have uncovered genetic variants that increase the risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD)

Scientists have uncovered genetic variants that increase the risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in research that experts hope could lead to a better understanding of the condition.

The women who don’t know they’re autistic

Let’s call her Sophie. The description we’ll give could be that of any woman who is on the autistic spectrum without knowing it. Because such women are intelligent and used to compensating for communication impediments they may not be consciously aware of, they can slip through the cracks of our still-inefficient diagnostic procedures.   World Autism Awareness Day takes place every April 2, and in 2018 the focus is on the empowerment of women and…
