Autism 'Connected' to Improper Connections in Brain Cells

Scientists in the US have come up with some valuable information which would definitely help us to understand in a greater dimension// how the mind of an autistic person is blue printed.

One in every 166 children is estimated to be affected by autism a developmental disorder typically characterized by exhibiting hurdles in communication and interaction with people.

Lead researcher Dr Michael Murias, from the University of Washington, at the presentation of the results of research at a meeting of the Society for Neuroscience, revealed that during the course of study conducted upon 36 adults the brain patterns mapped showed abnormality in cell to cell connections in those suffering from autism.

Sophisticated new generation scanning technology helped to unveil the complex connections in the cortex, that part of the brain that deals with complex thought, and also temporal lobe, which deals with language. Electroencephalography (EEG) which assess the activity of millions of brain cells, was done upon all the people who were part of the study as they sat relaxed for two minutes.

Some parts of the cortex brain cells seemed to make excessive connections while some other parts showed partial lack in connections, which implies poor internal communication between parts of the brain, according to the lead researcher Dr Murias.

Researchers suggest that the abnormal connections could infer ineffective and inconsistent communication within the brains of autistic people. This current research could be beneficial in detecting autism at an early stage.
