New brain imaging and computer modeling predicts autistic brain activity and behavior



New brain imaging and computer modeling predicts autistic brain activity and behavior







New research from CMU's Marcel Just provides an explanation for some of autism's mysteries and gives scientists clear targets for developing intervention and treatment therapies.Just and his team used brain imaging and computer modeling to show how the brain's white matter tracts -- the cabling that connects separated brain areas -- are altered in autism and how these alterations can affect brain function and behavior.
