New gene discoveries that code for neuronal connectivity are beginning to give new hope in targeting therapy to address the problems associated with connectivity. The autism spectrum brain exhibits connectivity disturbances that alters communication between neuronal regions. Neuronal mitochondrial depletion is among the causative factors that create impaired connectivity and synaptic control. There are many genes implicated in this phenomenon.
