The gene that guides early social behaviors could hold the key to understanding autism

23 November 2022 12:00 Little is known about how social behavior develops in the early stages of life. But most animals, including humans, are born with an innate ability to socially interact or bond with others. And that contributes to lifelong success. To test whether environmental factors could influence social behavior, the researchers exposed zebrafish …

Gene that guides early social behaviors may hold key to understanding autism – Neuroscience News

Summary: The TOP2a gene controls a network of genes that contribute to ASD. Drugs that suppress TOP2a during development can turn on a group of other genes that disrupt brain development and increase the risk of autism. Alterations in the TOP2a gene may be responsible for the social behavior difficulties associated with ASD. Source: University …
