Predicting Autism:

• labmanager.com By University of North Carolina

In two previous studies, University of North Carolina researchers and colleagues linked infant brain anatomy differences to autism diagnoses at age two. Now they show differences in functional connections between brain regions at 6 months to predict autism at age two

For the first time, autism researchers used MRIs of six-month olds to show how brain regions are connected and synchronized, and then predict which babies at high risk of developing autism would be diagnosed with the condition at age two. A previous University of North Carolina (UNC)-led study, published in Nature in February, used MRIs to determine differences in brain anatomy that predict which babies would develop autism as toddlers.
