Carnegie Mellon researchers discover key deficiencies in brains of people with autism

ndings confirmed that the regions of the brain associated with visualization were activated when participants with autism read both kinds of sentences, while those regions of the brain were only activated when the control group read the high-imagery sentences. The results also replicated the researchers' findings in the Cerebral Cortex study, in that functional connectivity was lower among participants with autism, and that structural connectivity was positively correlated with functional connectivity. The authors believe that the heavy reliance on visualization by people with autism may be an adaptation to compensate for their lower ability to call on frontal regions of the brain.

"Thinking in autism is an adaption to the brain that Mother Nature provided. We now have evidence of a systematic relation between the properties of the brain and the properties of the thinking in autism," said Just, the D.O. Hebb Professor of Psychology at Carnegie Mellon.
