Autism And Genes, More Compelling Evidence Of Links

Three new genome-wide association studies bring together the most compelling evidence to date that genes and autism are linked. The studies scanned and compared the entire set of human DNA of people who have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with that of people who do not and found small genetic differences that affect the way brain cells link up to make the circuitry of a child's brain.
