animal model of autism

december 16 2007

There is almost nothing known about the causes of autism.

I'm sure there isn't just one cause and I'm sure there are different types of autism.

Researchers in Dallas have found an entry in research.

They were able to exchange the normal mouse neurologin-3 gene with a mutated neuroligin-3 gene associated with autism in humans. The mice showed the expected behaviour.
Now they can try to find a way to reverse the effect.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to give my sons a pill and cure them?
