Mechanisms of mitochondrial dysfunction in autism  

This is a study of the effect of oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS) defects on specific neurologic features in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The researchers will also develop neuropsychological tests that can easily identify ASD patients with OXPHOSs. Project Status
