Nicotinic cholinergic system alterations and nitrous oxide exposure in a mouse model: a hypothesis for the pathobiology of autism spectrum disorder

Abstract

We thank Dr. Fluegge for his interest in our work demonstrating that nicotine, the prototypical nicotinic acetylcholine receptor agonist, modulates social behavior deficits and repetitive behavior in an animal model of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) (Wang et al. 2015).
