Sciencenews.org: Mice with a mutation linked to autism affect their littermates' behavior

The company mice keep can change their behavior. In some ways, genetically normal littermates behave like mice that carry an autism-related mutation, despite not having the mutation themselves, scientists report.  

The results, published July 31 in eNeuro, suggest that the social environment influences behavior in complex and important ways,
