Description

An official 2012 ANS satellite meeting, BioAutism 2012 will focus on the neural and biological basis of autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It is estimated that 1 in 100 children are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder each year. While the causes of autism are not clear, in recent years significant progress has been made towards unraveling the underlying disease etiology and candidate mechanisms. The aim of this meeting is to bring together researchers working on autism spectrum disorders from multiple disciplines, with the specific goal to consider how basic and clinical research can accelerate therapies and treatments.
Topics to be discussed include genetics, synaptic and circuit level mechanisms, cognitive mechanisms, animal models, moving from models and mechanisms to therapeutics.
