ConclusionAmong other demographic, clinical, and functional capacity variables, increased ASD symptoms emerged as a significant predictor of poorer social relationships and may therefore represent a key factor in predicting real-world social functioning in schizophrenia.

ConclusionsOur study points to modest and context-dependent transcriptional consequences ofMbd5 disruption in the brain. It also suggests a possible link betweenMBD5 and perturbations in ciliary function, which is an established pathogenic mechanism in developmental disorders and syndromes.

Gestational exposure to valproic acid (VPA) is known to cause behavioral deficits of sociability, matching similar alterations in human autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Available data are scarce on the neuromorphological changes in VPA-exposed animals. Here, we focused on alterations of the dopaminergic system, which is implicated in motivation and reward, with relevance to social cohesion. Whole brains from 7-day-old mice born to mothers given a single injection of VPA (400 mg/kg b.wt.) on E13.5 were immunostained against tyrosine hydroxylase (TH). They were scanned using the iDISCO method with a laser light-sheet microsco...

PCDH19 (protocadherin-19) was first identified as a cause of epilepsy and intellectual disability in 2008 [1]. Pathogenic variants in PCDH19 are associated with a complex neurodevelopmental syndrome characterized by epilepsy with fever-related clusters, intellectual disability, autism spectrum disorder and behavioral comorbidity [2]. The phenotypic spectrum related to PCDH19 is broadening to include patients with milder phenotype [3].
