Gene Required to Control Behavioral States May Be Linked to Autism

This gene, which the researchers dubbed vps-50, helps to regulate neuropeptides — tiny proteins that carry messages between neurons or from neurons to other cells. This kind of signaling is important for controlling physiology and behavior in animals, including humans.

The research is in Current Biology. (full access paywall)

New Blood Biomarker For Autism Identified

Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have identified a blood biomarker that may aid in earlier diagnosis of children with autism spectrum disorder, or ASD.

This looks really interesting! Good post. Was curious, can you figure out the age of children studied?

Following Jesus can be disappointing...
When our expectations do not meet our experience. Like when God does not move or act in our timing like in the story of where Lazarus died, Jesus waited 4 days to visit him and wake him up from death.

This election is no longer about Bernie Sanders versus Hillary Clinton, or Hillary Clinton versus Donald Trump. It is about integrity, ethics, and justice versus all manner of entrenched corruption. It is about journalistic ethics, the independent press, the role of money in politics, and the right of citizens to receive basic health care and education. It is about hope and change and realizing the better angels of our nature. Make no mistake: Election 2016 is no longer about the individuals running, but what they represent.

I encourage everyone in Ohio, or the other states voting today to get out and vote! We may not have the same beliefs, but I hope and pray that you all vote for the candidate that resonates with you and your beliefs. My Christian beliefs and my relationship with Jesus has shaped me in a unique way, which is why I'm voting with my heart and mind for what I believe is for the good of all people.

Scientists discover that removing a gene in early stages of life could "reverse" symptoms of autism. Can the same be done for human patients with autism?
Autism has diverse genetic causes, most of which are still unknown. About 1 percent of people with autism are missing a gene called Shank3, which is critical for brain development. Without this gene, individuals develop typical autism symptoms including repetitive behavior and avoidance of social interactions.

In a study of mice, MIT researchers have now shown that they can reverse some of those behavioral symptoms by turning the gene back on later in life, allowing the brain to properly rewire itself.

“This suggests that even in the adult brain we have profound plasticity to some degree,” says Guoping Feng, an MIT professor of brain and cognitive sciences. “There is more and more evidence showing that some of the defects are indeed reversible, giving hope that we can develop treatment for autistic patients in the future.”

Amazing food and service. Yummy rolls with honey butter while you wait for your food. There is normally a long wait to get a table though.

Terrible experiences in the ER several times. Not willing to listen to symptoms and not taken seriously. This is the worst Cleveland Clinic hospital I have been to. Does not represent the normal care I get at the Cleveland Clinic
