Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder that affects social communication and behavior. The etiology of this disorder is quite complex, involving genetic and environmental factors interacting to produce the condition. Animal models have been useful tools for investigating the underlying mechanisms of autism and have contributed significantly to our understanding of the disorder. This report is intended to review the various animal models of autism and the insights they have provided into the pathogenesis of autism.
