Description

Description

This study will investigate a mouse model for the effects of older brothers on behaviors that typify autistic spectrum disorder. Preliminary evidence suggests that a mammalian mother that has carried a son to term may produce antibodies that attack the nervous system of subsequent sons in utero. By learning how older brothers increase autistic-like behaviors in mice, insight may be gained into the development of autism and possible therapies for this disorder.
