    Neuron Glia Biol 7:85-97. 2011
    ..We propose that ASDs provide excellent opportunities to study the influence of microglia on neurodevelopment, and this knowledge could lead to novel therapies...

    Izumi Maezawa
    Department of Pathology, Laboratory Medicine, Medical Investigation of Neurodevelopmental Disorders Institute, University of California Davis Medical Center, Sacramento, California 95817, USA
    J Neurosci 30:5346-56. 2010
    ..Our results suggest that microglia may influence the onset and progression of RTT and that microglia glutamate synthesis or release could be a therapeutic target for RTT...
