BrainsTorm: working with white blood cells

The BrainsTorm project used cutting edge technology to transform white blood cells into brain-like cells, which can then be used as a cell model to identify cellular abnormalities in individuals with autism. The reasoning behind analyses of neurological cells is to improve the chances of detecting abnormalities related to autism.
