The fusiform and amygalda in the pathobiology of autism  

Functional magnetic resonance imaging studies (fMRI) of face perception in ASD have shown that two brain structures - the left amygdala and the lateral aspect of the right fusiform gyrus are functionally abnormal. These fMRI studies make use of infrared eye tracking technology to study the relationship between scan paths and regional brain activity in typically developing persons and in persons with an ASD.
