Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects an estimated one in 100 children with a range of communication, social and behavioral impairments. People with Fragile X syndrome, the most common inherited form of mental retardation, are at high risk for ASD. Professor Ethell’s research on the development of brain cells is contributing new information on how the brain works in health and disease, and has led to an effective treatment for Fragile X syndrome.
