Autism Biomaker - Cause of Autism?

This is a very important discovery. This could mean that perhaps no longer will be necessary to diagnose a child with autism based solely on observation but now physical evidence is presented.

Attached Image QUOTE
Scientists at CNRS, Aix-Marseille Université and AP-HM have identified a cerebral marker specific to autism that can be detected by MRI and is present as from the age of two years. The abnormality thus detected consists in a less deep fold in Broca's area, a region of the brain specialized in language and communication, functions that are impaired in autistic patients. This discovery may assist in the earlier diagnosis and management of these patients. Source 8y

It reads as a great start to finding out what causes autism but you still have to wait til 2 years to make the find. Ultimately I hope it leads towards prevention or even a cure.

Autism Biomaker - Cause of Autism? Health & Special Psychology

Maternal inflammation boosts serotonin, impairs fetal brain development in mice

Fighting the flu during pregnancy sickens a pregnant woman, but it may also put the fetus at a slightly increased risk for neurodevelopmental disorders like autism later in life. A new study in pregnant mice offers a potential mechanism explaining why: Inflammation alters neurotransmitters and impairs growth of nerve cells in the developing fetal brain. Ref. Source 9x.

Largest-ever whole genome autism study yields clues on how autism-linked gene changes arise

A new study expands understanding of autism's complex causes and may hold clues for the future development of targeted treatments. The report is the largest-ever whole genome study of autism, involving 200 children with the condition and both their unaffected parents. Ref. Source 1d.

Human Forebrain Circuits Under Construction - in a Dish
Autism-related errant migration of neurons corrected in patient-derived 3D “spheroids”

National Institutes of Health (NIH)-funded neuroscientists have created a 3D window into the human brain’s budding executive hub assembling itself during a critical period in prenatal development. What’s more, they used it to discover and experimentally correct - in a petri dish - defective cell migration caused by an autism-related disorder. Ref. Source 1i.

Neuroimaging technique may help predict autism among high-risk infants. Functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (FcMRI) may predict which high-risk, 6-month old infants will develop autism spectrum disorder by age 2 years, according to a new study. Source 2j.

Autism Biomaker - of Autism

Autism severity detected with brain activity test. Children with autism have a tell-tale difference on brain tests compared with other children, researchers have found. Specifically, the researchers found that the lower a child's peak alpha frequency -- a number reflecting the frequency of certain brain waves -- the lower their non-verbal IQ was. This is the first study to highlight peak alpha frequency as a promising biomarker. Source 2e.
