SFARI is working to advance autism science by providing a number of key resources to researchers.
We solicit applications for SFARI Awards from individuals who will conduct bold, imaginative, rigorous and relevant research in four main research areas: gene discovery, molecular mechanisms, circuits, cognition and behavior, and clinical.
Stefano Panzeri and colleagues used neuroimaging-derived measures to assess the sex differential impact of excitation/inhibition imbalance in idiopathic ASD.
Graeme Davis and colleagues showed that ASD risk genes genetically interact with a class of common modifiers of presynaptic homeostatic plasticity at the Drosophila neuromuscular junction.
Charles Nelson, Helen Tager-Flusberg and colleagues assessed language development in infants at high risk and low risk of ASD. They reported parental mean length of utterance as a possible difference in the high-risk group.
