BACKGROUND Hypoactivation of the inferior frontal gyrus during the perception of facial expressions has been interpreted as evidence for a deficit of the mirror neuron system in children with autism. We examined whether this dysfunction persists in adulthood, and how brain activity in the mirror neuron system relates to social functioning outside the laboratory. METHODS Twenty-one adult males with autism spectrum disorders and 21 typically developing subjects matched for age, sex, and IQ were… Expand
