Genes Expressed In The Corpus Callosum Are An Important Factor

Up until now, various researches conducted to better explain autism have principally targeted the neurons and neuronal development in children. While, these studies have identified various genes which are involved in autism, they have been unsuccessful at fully comprehending the said disease. However there may be more factors at work as the researchers of the Stanford University explain.

“Until now, we’ve suspected that autism could be the result of defects in the neurons themselves. Now it appears that the oligodendrocytes can contribute to the problem by inhibiting neuronal signaling through poor cellular differentiation and myelination,” said Michael Snyder who is a professor in ...
