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 differences in individuals on the autism spectrum. The reasoning behind analyses of neurological cells is to improve the chances of detecting cell differences related to autism.
