Autism and Genes

In the research sample, this study found some commonality between Autism and Schizophrenic in terms of genetic underpinnings. According to the abstract, autism and schizophrenia represent diametric conditions with regard to their genomic underpinnings, neurodevelopmental bases, and phenotypic manifestations. This showed up in some dysregulated genetic under-development in Schizophrenia versus dysregulated over-development in Autism. There were also some findings in the signaling systems linked to schizophrenia that showed some overlap with those for autism and for ADHD (attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder).
