Although there is substantial evidence from neuroimaging studies that the brain of a child with autism is undergoing abnormal development, little is known about the underlying cellular, molecular and genetic mechanisms that lead to the onset of autistic symptoms. The only way to answer questions related to the fundamental genetic and neuropathological aspects of autism spectrum disorder is to study brain tissue from individuals with autism spectrum disorder. The Autism BrainNet is a collaboration of 4 different research organizations to increase the number of brains available to researchers for study. Studies of postmortem brain tissue will lead the way to better prevention and treatment of autism spectrum and related neurodevelopmental disorders. To learn more go to
