Abstract

Structural imaging studies of autism have documented increased total brain volume and early acceleration in brain growth. Functional MR imaging (fMRI) studies in autism have also led to the view of autism as a disorder of cortical functioning in which functional connectivity or synchronization of brain regions and cortical activity are disturbed with atypical cortical specialization.
