Mouse model of SHANK3 deletion[edit]

In Nature, published 28-Apr-2011 (472, 437-442), a mouse model of SHANK3 deletion is described ("Shank3 mutant mice display autistic-like behaviours and striatal dysfunction"). These mice show self-injurious repetitive grooming and deficits in social interaction. The findings are defects at striatal synapses and cortico-striatal circuits. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Robert Eriksens (talkcontribs) 20:50, 13 June 2011 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

Under Etiology, Asperger's syndrome is stated to be a form of high functioning autism. There is no citation for this. It implies all Asperger's sufferers are high functioning, which is false. I recommend changing "a type of high-functioning autism." to "a disorder in the Autism spectrum." — Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.44.6.107 (talk) 09:11, 28 May 2011 (UTC)

  5. Incidence
  6. Prenatal screening
  7. Cognitive development
  8. Health
  9. Genetic research
  10. Sociological and cultural aspects
  11. References
