The long fibers of neurons in the brains of young children with autism are structured differently from those of their neurotypical peers — and from those of older children with the condition.
A new analysis hints at the source of the rampant inconsistency among brain imaging studies in autism: significant differences among study sites.
A magnetic scanner fitted within an ordinary bicycle helmet may make it easier to visualize autistic children’s brains.
The hemispheres in autistic people’s brains are more symmetrical than those of their typical peers, but it is unclear what this difference means.
A new analysis of nearly 40,000 people pinpoints 48 genetic variants that may determine the volume of certain brain areas.
Mapping brain activity in one person doing multiple tasks creates a more accurate picture of the brain than averaging the brain activity of multiple people doing a single task.
A new imaging technique detects specific groups of firing neurons in the brains of moving mice, enabling scientists to study brain activity linked to a particular behavior.
