Stem cell research news: Autism recreated from stem cells in lab study

Autism cells have been successfully recreated from stem cells in a lab study.  The study, being released to the news media today, will be published in an upcoming medical journal.  This may be big news to those of us raising children with autism.

A collaborative effort between researchers at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies and the University of California, successfully used human induced pluripotent stem (iPS) cells derived from patients with Rett syndrome to replicate autism in the lab and study the molecular pathogenesis of the disease.
