A new study by Geisel researchers, which appears in the journal Biological Psychiatry, is shedding new light into the neurobiological basis of autism spectrum disorders.
A recent report in Nature Neuroscience reveals that a key mechanism has been discovered in Alzheimer’s disease-related memory loss. Dartmouth researchers Bryan Luikart, PhD, and Mark Spaller, PhD, talk about these groundbreaking findings and their implications for better understanding and treating Alzheimer’s.
Recent research has linked autism with a lack of “pruning” in developing brain connections, but a new study by researchers at Dartmouth’s Geisel School of Medicine suggests instead it is the excessive growth of new connections that causes sensory overload in people with the disorder.
