Researchers in the Center for Cellular and Molecular Therapeutics (CCMT) at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia suggest that an intricate pathway crucial to the development of Huntington’s disease (HD) rests on a “biological teeter-totter” that when carefully balanced could help to control this devastating neurodegenerative disorder.

Children who are later diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder have subtle but measurable differences in attention as early as 7 months of age, a new study shows. Infants who went on to be diagnosed with autism are slower to shift their gaze from one object to another, according to the researchers, who identified specific brain circuits that seem to cause the slower response.

One out of 88 children in the United States has been diagnosed as having an autism spectrum disorder. There is no cure and relatively few treatments that work well for everyone on the autism spectrum. But research, including ground-breaking studies on infants, is making great strides to better understanding autism spectrum disorders.

A new study verifies the long-controversial belief that a few children, in exceptional cases, can “recover” from autism. The study, which included CHOP’s Center for Autism Research, is the first solid science to confirm that, however rarely, with the help of behavioral therapy some children can make such great improvements that they no longer qualify as having autism.
