Integrated function/structure image analysis in autism  

This study is centered on developing unique mathematical approaches that consider functional and structural information together in order to develop more sensitive and spatially-specific measurements. Researchers will test the ability of these approaches to separate subgroups in the autism spectrum (autism, Asperger's, PDD NOS).
