  1. Intellectual disability affects approximately one third of individuals with autism spectrum disorder (autism). Yet, a major unresolved neurobiological question is what differentiates autistic individuals with ...

    Authors: Joshua K. Lee, An Chuen Billy Cho, Derek S. Andrews, Sally Ozonoff, Sally J. Rogers, David G. Amaral, Marjorie Solomon and Christine Wu Nordahl
    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:51
  2. A growing number of variants associated with risk for neurodevelopmental disorders have been identified by genome-wide association and whole genome sequencing studies. As common risk variants often fall within...

    Authors: Jessica C. McAfee, Jessica L. Bell, Oleh Krupa, Nana Matoba, Jason L. Stein and Hyejung Won
    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:50
  3. Heterogeneity in neurodevelopmental disorders, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in particular, is increasingly identified as a barrier to identifying biomarkers and developing standards for ...

    Authors: Anne B. Arnett and Brian P. Flaherty
    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:45
  4. It is unclear whether atypical patterns of facial expression production metrics in autism reflect the dynamic and nuanced nature of facial expressions across people or a true diagnostic difference. Furthermore...

    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:43
  5. Numerous genes are implicated in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). ASD encompasses a wide-range and severity of symptoms and co-occurring conditions; however, the details of how genetic variation contributes to ...

    Authors: Olivia J. Veatch, Diego R. Mazzotti, Robert T. Schultz, Ted Abel, Jacob J. Michaelson, Edward S. Brodkin, Birkan Tunc, Susan G. Assouline, Thomas Nickl-Jockschat, Beth A. Malow, James S. Sutcliffe and Allan I. Pack
    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:39
  6. Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex neurodevelopmental condition characterized by restricted, repetitive behavior, and impaired social communication and interactions. However, significant challenges re...

    Authors: Mengge Zhao, James Havrilla, Jacqueline Peng, Madison Drye, Maddie Fecher, Whitney Guthrie, Birkan Tunc, Robert Schultz, Kai Wang and Yunyun Zhou
    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:32
  7. Autism spectrum disorder is a neurodevelopmental disorder, affecting 1–2% of children. Studies have revealed genetic and cellular abnormalities in the brains of affected individuals, leading to both regional a...

    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:29
  8. Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDDs), such as Down syndrome, Fragile X syndrome, Rett syndrome, and autism spectrum disorder, usually manifest at birth or early childhood. IDDs are characterized ...

    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:28
  9. Neonatal hypoxic brain injury is a major cause of intellectual and developmental disability. Hypoxia causes neuronal dysfunction and death in the developing cerebral cortex due to excitotoxic Ca2+-influx. In the ...

    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:26
  10. A wide variety of model systems and experimental techniques can provide insight into the structure and function of the human brain in typical development and in neurodevelopmental disorders. Unfortunately, thi...

    Authors: Alexander Li Cohen
    Citation: Journal of Neurodevelopmental Disorders 2022 14:19
  11. Although survival rates for infants born extremely preterm (gestation < 28 weeks) have improved significantly in recent decades, neurodevelopmental impairment remains a major concern. Children born extremely p...
