Report confirms challenge of ensuring adequate nutrition in children with autism; calls on clinicians and researchers to guide families
Dear friends and colleagues,
Cold Spring Harbor Lab will be hosting the meeting, Wiring the Brain, July 18-22. The meeting will bring together researchers from diverse fields to explore how brain connectivity is established, how genetic variation can affect these processes, how circuit and network function are affected by defects in neural development and how this can lead to psychiatric and neurological disease.
Some children diagnosed with autism in early childhood reach “optimal outcomes” with levels of function similar to their typical peers. The findings appear today in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry.
