Research points to brain's glutamate signaling in autism, ADHD, schizophrenia - Medical News Today

A large new analysis of DNA from thousands of patients has uncovered several underlying gene networks with potentially important roles in autism. These networks may offer attractive targets for developing new autism drugs or repurposing existing drugs that act on components of the networks.
Furthermore, one of the autism-related gene pathways also affects some patients with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and schizophrenia - raising the possibility that a class of drugs may treat particular subsets of all three neurological disorders.
