'Autistic' mice created — and treated
from New Scientist
A new strain of mice engineered to lack a gene with links to autism displays many of the hallmarks of the condition. It also responds to a drug in the same way as people with autism, which might open the way to new therapies for such people. It's not the first mouse strain to have symptoms of autism, and previous ones have already been useful models for studying the condition.
