not involved in the work The sensation of touch starts in the peripheral nervous system—in receptors at the surface of the skin—and travels along nerves that connect into the central nervous system Whereas many autism researchers focus on the end of the pathway—the brain—Orefice and colleagues wondered about the first leg of the trip So the group introduced mutations that silenced genes associated with autism spectrum disorders in mice adding them in a way that restricted the effects to peripheral nerve cells they report today in Cell The team singled out the gene Mecp2 which encodes a protein that regulates the expression of genes that help forge connections between nerve cells The Mecp2 mutant mice were more sensitive to light touch; a small puff of air on their backs startled the rodents more than normal mice Additionally the mutants were unable to distinguish between rough and smooth textures Just like normal mice—which love novelty—they played with new objects whenever given a choice between familiar and new ones that differed in shape and size But when the objects differed by texture they played just as much with familiar rough blocks of wood and new smooth ones—unlike the control mice Orefice suggests that an increased sensitivity to touch in the mutant mice makes any texture overwhelming so subtle differences are indistinguishable The animals also displayed autismlike behaviors beyond touch Even though the defective Mecp2 gene wasn’t present in brain cells the mutant mice were also more anxious and less social traits generally attributed to the central nervous system When given the option to hang out with another mouse or an object like an empty cup the mutant mice spent just as much time with the object as with the other mouse unlike normal mice which prefer a living companion Tests of anxiety also revealed differences Whereas normal mice will explore the entirety of an open area or venture onto the wall-less sides of an elevated platform the mutant mice preferred to hug the edges of the open area and remain in the walled regions of the platform suggesting heightened anxiety When the researchers silenced the genes in the peripheral nerves of adult animals they were still hypersensitive to light touch but they didn’t display the behavioral abnormalities seen in the animals that had the gene silenced from birth That suggests to Orefice’s team that there is a developmental window of time when touch influences behavior “The way we navigate our world is largely with a sense of touch” she says During development touch is key to learning how to interact with other animals and the environment If a light touch from another mouse is uncomfortable a mouse might learn to avoid its peers in the future And if the environment itself feels abrasive the mouse might stop exploring The researchers also found that the peripheral nerves of Mecp2 mutant mice had low levels of a receptor for the neurotransmitter GABA (gamma-aminobutryic acid) Low GABA levels in the brain have previously been linked to autism but the new finding opens up an unexpected treatment possibility: a drug that restores GABA function in the periphery “If we can normalize the hypersensitivity to touch it’s possible that this might help improve anxietylike behaviors and social interaction deficits This is not to say that the brain is not important” Orefice says But targeting the periphery along with the brain may be a way to get at the disease from both ends For now the findings apply only to mice which are an imperfect model for complex cognitive disorders such as autism “For translation to humans it would be important to know if pharmacological enhancement—ideally of the specific GABA receptor—can alleviate the peripheral hypersensitivity to touch especially in young children who may be in a critical period of vulnerability” says Takao Hensch a neuroscientist at Harvard University who was not involved in the research He also wonders whether the findings apply to other genetic forms of autism spectrum disorders Mecp2 has been shown to have unique effects on GABA in the brain; perhaps its peripheral effects are unique as well Still the finding that dysfunction in the touch system can contribute to behavioral problems is exciting Pelphrey says “It gives you a sense of how fundamental these sensory features might be … in terms of mechanistically causing some of the other features” he says “It really opens up a different way of thinking about what’s going on”By: Reuters | Updated: July 21 2016 7:03 pm

are keenly waiting for the services to be launched as Reliance seeks to reshape the Indian telecom market with low-priced offerings The company which bought its first airwaves in 2010 had been due to

adequate vitamin D have 10 per cent lower risk of developing depressionthe ‘Daily Mail reported For their studythe researchers looked at vitamin D levels in more than 2700 children when they were aged nine and 13 Those with the lowest levels of vitamin D were more likely to show signs of depression Children with higher levels were also more likely to show a decline in depressive symptoms in their teenage years The study investigated levels of two forms of the vitamin — D2 and D3 — and found the strongest anti-depression link with D3say the researchers Howeverlead researcher Dr Anna-Maija

that the world’s most valuable company will use some of the money for a huge acquisition that would expand its empire beyond iPhones and other gadgets The company currently holds more than a

one of the few companies — if not the only one — that could pay that sum out of its pocket The Cupertino California company ended March with nearly $257 billion in cash and marketable securities according to numbers released Tuesday with Apple’s earnings report for the January-March quarter That’s up from $233 billion a year ago and the figure is expected to keep growing as Apple piles up more profits from the iPhone iPad and Mac as well as the applications and services that feed those devices In its latest quarter Apple’s earnings climbed 5 percent to $11 billion while revenue also rose 5 percent to nearly $53 billion In recent years Apple has used a large chunk of its cash to provide its shareholders with extra income The company disclosed plans on Tuesday to raise its quarterly dividend by more than 10 percent to 63 cents per share marking the fifth increase in five years Apple also has spent $151 billion buying back its own stock since 2012 Doing a mega-deal would be a major departure for Apple whose largest acquisition to date was its $3 billion purchase of Beats Electronics in 2014 that helped launch its music streaming service THE SLOWING SMARTPHONE But Daryanani and other analysts believe Apple may need to make a pricier acquisition to lessen the company’s dependence on the iPhone at a time when smartphone sales have been slowing IPhone sales edged up 1 percent in Apple’s latest quarter extending a recovery from an unprecedented downturn last year But many investors remain concerned that Apple has become too vulnerable to the ups and downs of the smartphone market mostly because the company hasn’t been able to come up with another hit product since the 2011 death of its co-founder and CEO Steve Jobs Apple’s last big success the iPad came out in 2010 but sales of the tablet have been declining for more than three years Meanwhile the iPhone accounted for nearly two-thirds of Apple’s revenue in the past quarter The Trump administration
