Autism and Genes, 2

In the researched subjects, the study found that that genes related to synapse function in the cortex were affected. Also, the microglial supporting cells (involved with the brain’s immune system also showed problems with genes. [Note: I found it fascinating that the glial cells were implicated. You may recall hearing news that the dementia related to HIV infection and AIDS appears to have resulted due to the dysregulation and death of the microglial cells—and without their support and care for the neurons, they died]
