Brain glutamate concentrations in autistic adolescents by MRS  

There is some evidence that the glutamate system may be abnormal in the brain and that the abnormalities may arise after early childhood. The goal of the study is to determine whether adolescents with autism exhibit increased glutamate concentrations in the anterior cingluate, caudate, and limbic system compared to healthy volunteers matched for age and full IQ.
