Multimodal brain imaging in autism spectrum disorders  

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) will be used to investigate abnormalities in neural connectivity in ASD. We will study two domains of impairment (face perception and response to social information) and determine how neural connectivity relates to symptom severity. Twenty-five individuals with high functioning ASD (FSIQ > 80) and 25 typically developing (TD) individuals will participate in the study.
