Autism Behaviors Show Unique Brain Network Fingerprints in Infants

Science Daily, 13 November 2018

A new study has identified unique functional brain networks associated with characteristic behaviors of autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in 12- and 24-month old children at risk for developing ASD.

Can a Computer Diagnose Autism?

Spectrum News, 11 July 2018

Some researchers say delays in autism diagnosis could shrink with the rise of machine learning a technology developed as part of artificial-intelligence research. In particular, they are pinning their hopes on the latest version of machine learning, known as deep learning.

Fragile X Imaging Study Reveals Differences in Infant Brains

UMN, 4 April 2018

For the first time, researchers have used MRIs to show that babies with the neurodevelopmental condition fragile X syndrome had less-developed white matter compared to infants that did not develop the condition. These findings could lead to new and earlier interventions, and potentially better treatment outcomes.
