Brain protein mutation from child with autism causes autism-like behavioral change in mice: This is a potential mechanistic underpinning — at least in a subset of patients — for the altered behaviors observed in autism

A de novo gene mutation that encodes a brain protein in a child with autism has been placed into the

Protein key to charcot-marie-tooth, other nerve diseases: Finding in laboratory mice also may shed light on Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and related disorders

A new study provides critical insight into a little-known, yet relatively common, inherited neurological condition called Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease. The findings
