Early research shows how mild defects in the ‘batteries’ of cells in brain tissue can lead to behaviors similar to those of autism. Researchers at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) have demonstrated that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) may be caused by defects in the mitochondria of brain cells. The […]
