GABAergic dysfunction in autism  

Autism is a severe neurodevelopmental disorder with genetic and environmental etiologies and a prevalence rate of 16 per 10,000, which appears to result from altered development of nervous tissue pre- and postnatally. The central hypothesis of this application is that certain gene families involved in cell growth and migration and GABAergic neurotransmission will be altered in autism.
