(Kanazawa University) Three- to five-year-old children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and delayed language development appear to process voices differently than typically developing children, according to a new study published in Scientific Reports.

Renaming schizophrenia: 5 × 5. Epidemiol Psychiatr Sci. 2018 Oct 18;:1-4 Authors: Guloksuz S, van Os J Abstract There had been a long way to go before we felt comfortable about even discussing the issues revolving around the concept of 'schizophrenia', let alone reckoning on mere semantic revision. In this editorial, we aim to extend our discussion on the reasons behind the slow death of the concept of 'schizophrenia' and the benefits of changing the name and embracing a spectrum approach with an umbrella psychosis spectrum disorder (PSD) category (similar to autism spectrum disorder) that goes f...

Conclusions: Further exploration of the views of those who have experienced inclusion would further challenge existing practices. Moreover, the training and preparation of teachers is key to reforming schools. However, wider social values and beliefs towards disabilities also need to change.

In this study, we propose a novel method that directly models the regional temporal BOLD fluctuations in a stochastic manner and estimates the dynamic characteristics in the form of likelihoods. Specifically, we modeled temporal BOLD fluctuation of individual Regions Of Interest (ROIs) by means of Hidden Markov Models (HMMs), and then estimated the ‘goodness-of-fit’ of each ROI's BOLD signals to the corresponding trained HMM in terms of a likelihood. Using estimated likelihoods of the ROIs over the whole brain as features, we built a classifier that can discriminate subjects with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) ...

ConclusionsBy highlighting the subcellular compartments in which UBE3A is likely to function in the human neocortex, our data provide insight into the diverse functional capacities of this E3 ligase. These anatomical data may help to elucidate the role of UBE3A in Angelman syndrome and autism spectrum disorder.
