Cerebellar anatomic and functional connectivity in autism spectrum disorders  

The cerebellum is one of the most widely connected structures in the central nervous system, and it is also the most consistent site of brain abnormality in autism. Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and functional connectivity magnetic resonance imaging (FCMRI) will be used to examine the anatomic and functional integrity of cerebellar connections with limbic, thalamic, and cerebrocortical sites in individuals with autism spectrum disorders and in healthy controls.
