Skin cells derived from autistic donors grew faster than those from control subjects, and activated their genes in distinct patterns, scientists report. Genes related to cell growth were unusually active, leading to more cells but fewer connections between them. This can cause faulty cell networks unable to properly transmit signals in the brain and enlarged heads during early development, say the researchers.
