Sexuality in the Autism Spectrum Study (SASS): Reports from Young Adults and Parents.

Kathrin Hartmann, Maria R Urbano, C Teal Raffaele, Lydia R Qualls, Takeshia V Williams, Clay Warren, Nicole L Kreiser, David E Elkins, Stephen I Deutsch,

Previous research indicates that although those with ASD desire sexual relationships, they may not effectively engage in romantic and intimate interactions. The purpose of this study was to compare reports from young adults with ASD and parents from the same families on the young adult's sexual behavior, experiences, knowledge, and ... Read more >>

Clinical considerations for the inclusion of individuals with autism spectrum disorder in clinical trials.

Maria R Urbano, C Teal Raffaele, Nicole L Kreiser, Jennifer M Flaherty, Kathrin Hartmann,

Diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have increased considerably over the past 20 years. Because of this rise and the inherent complexity of ASD, there is a need for an increased number of scientifically valid basic and clinical research studies addressing this disorder. This manuscript serves as an introduction to the ... Read more >>

Life After an Autism Spectrum Disorder Diagnosis: A Comparison of Stress and Coping Profiles of African American and Euro-American Caregivers.

Takeshia V Williams, Kathrin Hartmann, James F Paulson, C Teal Raffaele, Maria R Urbano,

The purpose of the present study was to understand how caregiver stress and coping behaviors impact African American and Euro-American families differently when caring for a child with autism. This study used discriminate function analysis to contrast the stress and coping profiles of Euro-American caregivers who are more acculturated with ... Read more >>

Outcomes of an emotion regulation intervention group in young adults with autism spectrum disorder.

Kathrin Hartmann, Maria R Urbano, C Teal Raffaele, Nicole L Kreiser, Takeshia V Williams, Lydia R Qualls, David E Elkins,

Individuals on the autism spectrum experience difficulties in social relationships and emotion regulation. The aim of the present exploratory research study was to develop and explore the effectiveness of a manualized emotion regulation group intervention for autistic adults to improve emotion regulation and social communication. The group participants included seven ... Read more >>

Neuromotor and cognitive responses of adults with autism spectrum disorder compared to neurotypical adults.

Steven Morrison, Cortney N Armitano, C Teal Raffaele, Stephen I Deutsch, Serina A Neumann, Hope Caracci, Maria R Urbano,

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a common neurodevelopmental disorder, whose core symptom domains include impaired social communication and narrowed interests and/or repetitive behaviors; in addition, deficits of general cognition, neuromotor function, and movement ability can be observed. This study was designed to examine differences in neuromotor and cognitive functions for ... Read more >>

Autism spectrum disorder in Latin American families: Experiences in Chile.

Kathrin Hartmann, C Teal Kozikowski, Maria R Urbano, Takeshia V Williams, Caroline Luong-Tran Ba, Alexander Peterkin,

INTRODUCTION:The present study provides pilot data investigating relationships between severity of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) traits, community supports, and other family variables as reported by caregivers of children with ASD in Chile. METHOD:An anonymous caregiver survey was developed based on previous ASD survey studies conducted in the United States and ... Read more >>

Sugarcoated Perineuronal Nets Regulate "GABAergic" Transmission: Bittersweet Hypothesis in Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Jessica A Burket, Maria R Urbano, Stephen I Deutsch,

Fast-spiking, parvalbumin-expressing "GABAergic" interneurons regulate synchronous oscillatory output of pyramidal neurons. Metabolic demands of these GABAergic projections are great because local ion concentrations must be optimally maintained; in addition, high rates of mitochondrial respiration necessitate exquisite redox regulation. Interestingly, only fast-spiking, parvalbumin-expressing basket cells coexpressing 3 metalloproteinases seem to be ... Read more >>

The 15q13.3 deletion syndrome: Deficient α(7)-containing nicotinic acetylcholine receptor-mediated neurotransmission in the pathogenesis of neurodevelopmental disorders.

Stephen I Deutsch, Jessica A Burket, Andrew D Benson, Maria R Urbano,

Array comparative genomic hybridization (array CGH) has led to the identification of microdeletions of the proximal region of chromosome 15q between breakpoints (BP) 3 or BP4 and BP5 encompassing CHRNA7, the gene encoding the α7-nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (α7nAChR) subunit. Phenotypic manifestations of persons with these microdeletions are variable and some ... Read more >>

The α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor: A mediator of pathogenesis and therapeutic target in autism spectrum disorders and Down syndrome.

Stephen I Deutsch, Jessica A Burket, Maria R Urbano, Andrew D Benson,

Currently, there are no medications that target core deficits of social communication and restrictive, repetitive patterns of behavior in persons with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Adults with Down syndrome (DS) display a progressive worsening of adaptive functioning, which is associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD)-like histopathological changes in brain. Similar to ...

Pharmacotherapeutic implications of the association between genomic instability at chromosome 15q13.3 and autism spectrum disorders.

Stephen I Deutsch, Maria R Urbano, Jessica A Burket, Amy L Herndon, Erin E Winebarger,

Recurrent microdeletions of chromosome 15q13.3 are causally associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs), suggesting that haploinsufficiency of CHRNA7, the gene that codes for the α7 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (α7 nAChR) subunit, is an etiological mechanism. Independent of these genetic data, given the location of α7 nAChRs on γ-aminobutyric acid-inhibitory neurons ... Read more >>

Cholinergic abnormalities in autism: is there a rationale for selective nicotinic agonist interventions?

Stephen I Deutsch, Maria R Urbano, Serina A Neumann, Jessica A Burket, Elionora Katz,

The core dysfunctions of autism spectrum disorders, which include autistic disorder, Asperger disorder, and pervasive developmental disorder not otherwise specified, include deficits in socialization and communication and a need for the preservation of "sameness;" intellectual impairment and epilepsy are common comorbidities. Data suggest that pathological involvement of cholinergic nuclei and ... Read more >>
