Diffusion tensor MRI + histopathology of brain microstructure + fiber pathways  

The results of this project will provide a comprehensive understanding of brain microstructure and histopathology and its relation to structural connectivity as measured by diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) and functional connectivity in Projects II and III with whom subjects will be shared. This project will also provide critical insight into the structural outcome of the early disturbances in brain growth in autism.
