Finding a cause of neurodevelopmental disorders

Neurodevelopmental disorders arising from rare genetic mutations can cause atypical cognitive function, intellectual disability, and developmental delays, yet it is unclear why and how this happens. Scientists suspected a mutation in a complex of proteins could be the culprit for a group of rare genetic disorders and now, researchers have identified the molecular mechanism linking this mutation with abnormal nervous system development. The team’s findings bring researchers one step closer to understanding neurodevelopmental disorders.
