Vitamins, omega-3 supplements may improve autism symptoms

(Reuters Health) - Children with autism who take supplements of vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids may have fewer symptoms than kids who don't, a research review suggests.

Gandal, Luis de la Torre-Ubieta, Bogdan Pasaniuc, Jason L. Stein, Daniel H. GeschwindSummaryTissue-specific regulatory regions harbor substantial genetic risk for disease. Because brain development is a critical epoch for neuropsychiatric disease susceptibility, we characterized the genetic control of the transcriptome in 201 mid-gestational human brains, identifying 7,962 expression quantitative trait loci (eQTL) and 4,635 spliceQTL (sQTL), including several thous...

Last year, Molecular Brain became the first BMC journal to introduce Micro Reports, an innovative way to quickly share research which would otherwise go unpublished as a full research paper. Micro Reports are short research summaries of up to 1200 words, ideal for publishing negative results, reproduced studies, smaller data sets which are still important but would not warrant a full research article, and brand new findings which should enter the public domain as soon as possible. Since the launch of this new article type, the journal has received 58 Micro Report submissions, with 24 publications to date. We’ve highl...

The objective of this study is to describe variables of life habits associated with motor skills of children with autism spectrum disorder aged 8-10 years living in the city of Pelotas / RS. A questionnaire about lifestyle was applied and the Test of Gross Motor Development-2 (TGMD-2) was applied to assess motor skills. Independent T-test, ANOVA and Wilcoxon test were used to compare means. The study consisted of 49 individuals (42 males). The results indicate that the higher the level of ASD, the better the motor skills. Children making use of medications have greater deficits in motor skills. Higher scores on motor skill...

Contributor : Lisa StubbsSeries Type : Expression profiling by high throughput sequencingOrganism : Mus musculusAUTS2 was originally discovered as the gene disrupted by a translocation in human twins with Autism spectrum disorder (ASD), intellectual disability, and epilepsy. Since that initial finding, AUTS2-linked mutations and variants have been associated with a very broad array of neuropsychiatric disorders, suggesting that AUTS2 is required for fundamental steps of neurodevelopment. However, genotype-phenotype correlations in this region are complicated, because most mutations could also involve neighboring genes. Of ...

Publication date: Available online 16 October 2019Source: Pharmacology &TherapeuticsAuthor(s): Kazu Nakazawa, Kiran SapkotaAbstractN-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor (NMDAR) hypofunction plays a key role in pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Since NMDAR hypofunction has also been reported in autism, Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive dementia, it is crucial to identify the location, timing, and mechanism of NMDAR hypofunction for schizophrenia for better understanding of disease etiology and for novel therapeutic intervention. In this review, we first discuss the shared underlying mechanisms of NMDAR hypofunction...

Atypical reciprocal social interactions involving emotional facial expressions are a core clinical feature of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Previous functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies have demonstrated that some social brain regions, including subcortical (e.g., amygdala) and neocortical regions (e.g., fusiform gyrus, FG) are less activated during the processing of facial expression stimuli in individuals with ASD. However, the functional networking patterns between the subcortical and cortical regions in processing emotional facial expressions remain unclear. We investigated this issue in ASD (n = 31) ...
