Understanding emotions in others: mirror neuron dysfunction in children with autism spectrum disorders
High-functioning children with autism and matched controls underwent fMRI while imitating and observing emotional expressions, suggesting that a dysfunctional 'mirror neuron system' may underlie the social deficits observed in autism.
The Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange: Towards Large-Scale Evaluation of the Intrinsic Brain Architecture in Autism
W Whole-brain analyses reconciled seemingly disparate themes of both hypo- and hyperconnectivity in the ASD literature; both were detected, although hypoconnectivity dominated, particularly for corticocortical and interhemispheric functional connectivity.
The mirror neuron system and the consequences of its dysfunction
The neurophysiology of the mirror neuron system and its role in social cognition is reviewed and the clinical implications of mirror neuron dysfunction are discussed.

Findings unique to adolescents indicated that activity in the subgenual anterior cingulate cortex (subACC) related to greater distress, and thatActivity in the ventral striatum related to less distress and appeared to play a role in regulating activity inThe subACC and other regions involved in emotional distress.

It is confirmed that children with ASD have difficulty interpreting the communicative intent of others and suggested that these individuals can recruit regions activated as part of the normative neural circuitry when task demands require explicit attention to socially relevant cues.
