Social cognition is an important human skill frequently impaired in several neurodevelopmental disorders, including autism. Human genetic approaches have led to the identification of a number of genes associated with autism. However, how mutations in autism-associated genes affect the synaptic circuits of specific brain areas relevant for social interaction are not known. To identify synaptic […]
