Possible Biological Clues to Autism

A new study out of Yale University might have unlocked the biological secret of what causes autism in some people. Though this is seen as a major step forward, researchers said it will still be a long time before the findings lead to any new developments in autism treatment.
The study, published Tuesday in the journal Nature Communications, shows that CHD8, a gene strongly linked to autism, controls the expression of many other genes, most of which have also been implicated in causing the condition.
