Potential teratogenic effects of ultrasound on corticogenesis: Implications for autism

Authors:Williams, E. L. and Cassanova, M. F.
The terogenic effects of ultrasound. Ultrasound enhances the genesis and differentiation of progenitor cells by activating the nitric oxide pathway and related neurotrophins. Rising rates of autism with coincidental increase in use of ultrasound in obstetrics should be further investigated.
