"Nature Neuroscience," a multidisciplinary journal that publishes papers in all areas of neuroscience, has produced a special focus on childhood developmental disorders,
including autism. The journal explores four perspectives on the overlap between normal and abnormal development, as well as the commonalities between different disorders, including a paper on the intersection between autism and fragile X syndrome by Matthew K. Belmonte, member of Cure Autism Now's Scientific Review Council, and Thomas Bourgeron. Cure Autism Now is proud to sponsor this special focus along with the March of Dimes and Autism Speaks. Through sponsorship the special focus is available online at no cost through December 2006.
