This research study has proved that DIXDC1 gene mutation is responsible for autism and other psychiatric disorders. This gene mutation is found in a small number of individuals with autism and researchers have noted that there is a number of other autism-related gene mutation that impairs synaptic development and further psychiatric disorders. This research will be helpful in finding new safe and effective treatment for autism that can restore brain cell synapse growth and activity. In autism th...
