We feel that this result is important. It tells us that the brain itself remembers the consequences of the viral insult, rather than the memory residing in, say, the immune system alone. And it gives clear indication that the outcome is linked to the development of autistic features in the nerve cells themselves. It also helps explain how multiple different risk factors—genetic and environmental—all converge on the same set of outcomes, namely the core symptoms of autism. It thereby provides a potential explanatory mechanism of the “final common pathway” for autism: why multiple different genetic, molecular, and neural factors can give rise to it. … [Read more...] about Autism in the Age of COVID

It can also be hard for well-meaning family and friends to know how to offer support, even if they want to. … [Read more...] about What Is Pregnancy Loss and Why Does It Matter?
The future of the neuroscience lies at the crossroads of technology and collaboration. As neuroscientists refine and innovate genetics and optics technologies3, they inch closer towards a live look into an organism’s brain as it operates in the natural world. By studying an animal’s neural activity in vivo, where they can freely explore their environment, researchers elucidate the dynamics of individual cells. As The Bolton Lab progresses to in vivo trials, research methods like optogenetics will decipher much richer forms of communication in the brain. … [Read more...] about Neurons, the Brain’s Chatter Bugs
