Children with autism who take certain medications have different patterns of brain connectivity than do unmedicated children with the condition.
Despite the completion of hundreds of imaging studies in people with autism, researchers have yet to find features that distinguish people with the condition.
Brain scans of sleeping children with autism reveal reduced synchrony between a brain region that processes emotions and structures involved in social communication.
The biggest bank of brain scans from people with autism just doubled in size, boosting the odds of spotting a signal in the noisy data.
A new study reveals how chemicals in the newborn brain forge connections between neurons.
An intricately pleated brain may underlie the highly organized connections between nearby neurons in people with autism.
Researchers have documented the shape and electrical activity of more than 2,000 neurons in the mouse brain, and charted the connections between them.
People with autism show excessively synchronized activity between brain regions while conversing with others.
The brains of young children with autism show abnormally dense connections involving the frontal lobe. The excess wiring may disrupt the development of social and language circuits.
A group of nerves at the base of the brain that govern movement appear to be structurally compromised in people with autism. The lower the integrity of these nerves, the more severe a person’s autism symptoms.
