Localization of white matter volume increase in autism and developmental language disorder
Increased brain volume in autism appears to be driven mainly by an unexplained white matter enlargement, and we have reported a similar phenomenon in developmental language disorder (DLD).Expand

Brain asymmetries in autism and developmental language disorder: a nested whole-brain analysis.
We report a whole-brain MRI morphometric survey of asymmetry in children with high-functioning autism and with developmental language disorder (DLD). Subjects included 46 boys of normal intelligenceExpand

Reliability of MRI-derived cortical and subcortical morphometric measures: Effects of pulse sequence, voxel geometry, and parallel imaging
Advances in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have contributed greatly to the study of neurodegenerative processes, psychiatric disorders, and normal human development, but the effect of suchExpand

Dissociations of cerebral cortex, subcortical and cerebral white matter volumes in autistic boys.
High-functioning autistic and normal school-age boys were compared using a whole-brain morphometric profile that includes both total brain volume and volumes of all major brain regions. We performedExpand

Abnormal asymmetry in language association cortex in autism
Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting cognitive, language, and social functioning. Although language and social communication abnormalities are characteristic, prior structural imagingExpand

Cognition in healthy aging is related to regional white matter integrity, but not cortical thickness
It is well established that healthy aging is accompanied by structural changes in many brain regions and functional decline in a number of cognitive domains. The goal of this study was to determineExpand

Language‐association cortex asymmetry in autism and specific language impairment
Language deficits are among the core impairments of autism. We previously reported asymmetry reversal of frontal language cortex in boys with autism. Specific language impairment (SLI) and autismExpand

Amygdala volume associated with alcohol abuse relapse and craving.
OBJECTIVE Amygdala volume has been associated with drug craving in cocaine addicts, and amygdala volume reduction is observed in some alcohol-dependent subjects. This study sought an association inExpand

Statistical adjustments for brain size in volumetric neuroimaging studies: Some practical implications in methods
Volumetric magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) brain data provide a valuable tool for detecting structural differences associated with various neurological and psychiatric disorders. Analysis of suchExpand

Decreased Absolute Amygdala Volume in Cocaine Addicts
The amygdala is instrumental to a set of brain processes that lead to cocaine consumption, including those that mediate reward and drug craving. This study examined the volumes of the amygdala andExpand
