Cerebral asymmetry and language in autism  

The main goal of this proposal is to evaluate whether left hemisphere planum temporale (PT) volume reduction, assessed by morphometric analysis of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data, is present in the parents of children with autism. Such a finding would bolster support our hypothesis that PT volume reduction represents a familial risk factor for language delay and deviance often seen in individuals with autistic disorder.
