Autism-like behaviors in mice have been reduced, using an experimental agent being tested in patients for a related disorder. Here, a mouse is absorbed in repetitive self-grooming. The experimental agent reduced this repetitive behavior in a strain of mice that is prone to it, and almost stopped repetitive vertical jumping in another strain of mice.
