This study explored white matter abnormalities in a group of Chinese children with high functioning autism (HFA). Twelve male children with HFA and ten matched typically developing children underwent diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) as well three-dimensional T1-weighted MRI for voxel-based morphometry (VBM). We found a significant decrease of the white matter(More)
Earlier studies have suggested abnormal brain volumes in autism, but inconsistencies exist. Using voxel-based morphometry, we compared global and regional brain volumes in 17 high-functioning autistic children with 15 matched controls. We identified significant reduction in left white matter volume and white/gray matter ratio in autism. Regional brain(More)
