Abnormal functional connectivity in autism spectrum disorders during face processing

2018-05-17T01:32:10-04:00

Abnormal functional connectivity in autism spectrum disorders during face processing Abnormalities in the interactions between functionally linked brain regions have been suggested to be asso- ciated with the clinical impairments observed in autism spectrum disorders (ASD). We investigated functional connectivity within the limbic system during face identification; a primary component of [...]

Fear-Potentiated Startle Response Is Unrelated to Social or Emotional Functioning in Adolescents With Autism Spectrum Disorders

2018-05-18T04:54:07-04:00

Fear-Potentiated Startle Response Is Unrelated to Social or Emotional Functioning in Adolescents With Autism Spectrum Disorders It has been suggested that atypical amygdala function contributes to the social impairments characteristic of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Previous research has demonstrated that adolescents and adults with ASD generate normal response during a fear-potentiated [...]

The Role of Face Familiarity in Eye Tracking of Faces by Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders

2018-05-18T04:51:54-04:00

The Role of Face Familiarity in Eye Tracking of Faces by Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders It has been shown that individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) demonstrate normal activation in the fusiform gyrus when viewing familiar, but not unfamiliar faces. The current study utilized eye tracking to investigate patterns of [...]
