    Post Daily RC Passage for the date 01-Oct-11

    Summary: UCLA scientists created a mouse model for autism that opens a window into the biological mechanisms for treatment to people with autism. They concentrated on CNTNAP2 which they believe is important in brain circuits responsible for language and speech. But unfortunately the mice they created is lacking it. Their observations are consistent with the older theories that suggest autism rewires the brain to reduce long-range communications and boost short-range communications. Over all their mice responded weel to the treatment with an FDA approved drug, except for its social skill which will be thier next aim.

    Central Idea: UCLA secientist developed an autistic mouse model to experiment the treatments for people with autism. The model is success to a greater extent except they could not make up the factors for social behaviour, which will be their next experiment.

    Post Daily RC Passage for the date 01-Oct-11

    Summary: A new approach has been found for treatment of autism. Dr. Geschwind has found similarities between autistic mice and autistic human beings. The neurons of both get highly connected in the frontal lobes and have limited connectivity with the rest of the brain. They also show same symptoms. The drug that is used on humans also works on the mice. Though Dr. Geschwind was skeptical at first he was surprised to see so many similarities and believes that now further research can be made to treat autism using the analogy.

    Central Idea: The central idea of the passage is the similarity between autistic mice and autistic human beings. Both show the same neural structure and also same type of reaction i.e low social connectivity, etc. The drug that is used on humans also acts in the same way on mice. This is a very important result as mice can now be used in the labs to find better treatments for humans.

    Summary: The passage is a part of scientifiic literature discussing the findings od=f a research agancy. It says the striking similarity betwen the behaviour of humnan autistic patient and autistic mouse, thus opening new avenues in understanding the mechanism of the disease in human, which in turn can lead to the cure of autistic human patients. It also discusses about a special protein leading to the behaviour in mouse.

    Central Idea: Striking similarity between the autistic humans and mice can open new possibilities for the disase's cure.

    Summary: the success of mouse model to explain the previously establishe dtheories on human autism and scope of future cure for autistic patients through mouse model. But the mouse, affected by autism due to disorder in brain connections caused by the very same gene that does cause autism in human, responds to the therapy that is used for human of same case but anamolies in social communication are yet to be rectified.

    Central Idea: The break through of mouse model in holding confirmation with previous autistis theories and scope of future study which can be applied to humans too.

    Summary: the passage mainly talks about autism and the the similarities between an autistic mouse and a huma suffering from autism.Research findings are presented to show the effects of absence of CNTCAP2. How geschwind low xpectations on the nouse model turned out to be high and a abse for future explorations

    Central Idea: the new findings about autism and few oft the similarities between human and mice gene behaviour. Also, about further exploration on mouse model
