What have scientists learned about autism from brain tissue research, and what do they hope to learn? Listen to David Amaral, Ph.D., of the University of California MIND Institute, as he discussed brain research during an online webinar October 28, 2015.
Brain tissue research
There is a severe shortage of postmortem brain tissue for research. This article presents some of the major advances in autism research made possible through human brain tissue research.
There is a severe shortage of brain tissue for research. Because it has been so difficult for researchers to procure brain tissue without advance registration, It Takes Brains seeks to make the public aware of the promise of brain research and the critical need for people to register to donate brain tissue.
