A new technique allows researchers to analyze raw data across multiple studies that use electroencephalography.
People with autism may have patterns of brain activity that are similar to those in typical people when interpreting social interactions.
A custom-built machine can scan the brains of awake mice and may improve our understanding of conditions such as autism.
Autistic children who have behavioral problems tend to have an enlarged right amygdala, and in girls the size is associated with the severity of certain behaviors.
People with mutations in a gene called TBR1 have unusual features in several brain regions, along with autism traits and developmental delay.
