New biomarkers proposed for earlier diagnosis of autism

Researchers at the University of Warwick have developed new blood and urine tests to indicate those with autism. The biomarkers in blood and urine could lead to earlier detection of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and consequently children with autism could be given appropriate treatment much earlier in their lives. The findings are published in Molecular … Continue reading New biomarkers proposed for earlier diagnosis of autism

New technique called Automated Fiber Quantification to help understand brain changes in Autism Spectrum disorder

A new study found significant changes in white matter pathways in the brains of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using a novel technique called Automated Fiber Quantification (AFQ). Evidence of both increases and decreases in diffusion across white matter tracts and the relationship of these changes to patient age are reported in journal Brain … Continue reading New technique called Automated Fiber Quantification to help understand brain changes in Autism Spectrum disorder
