Socio‐behavioral impairments are important characteristics of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and MRI‐based studies are pursued to identify a neurobiological basis behind these conditions. This paper presents an MRI‐based study undertaken to (i) identify the differences in brain activities due to ASD, (ii) verify whether such differences exist within the ‘social brain’ circuit which is hypothesized to be responsible for social functions, and (iii) uncover potential compensatory mechanisms… 
Resting-state abnormalities in Autism Spectrum Disorders: A meta-analysis
TLDR
Two ASD-related resting-state findings are demonstrated: local underconnectivity in the dorsal posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) and in the right medial paracentral lobule, which may serve as potential neurobiological markers for ASD.

TLDR
The posterior cingulate cortex plays pivotal roles in cognitive, social and emotional processing, as well as early neural development that supports complex interactions among different neural networks, and the most replicated finding in ASD studies is the reduced functional coupling between the PCC and medial prefrontal cortex.

TLDR
A potential objective way to explore sub‐regional differences associated with such disorders as autism spectrum disorder is suggested.
Diagnostic classification of autism using resting-state fMRI data improves with full correlation functional brain connectivity compared to partial correlation
TLDR
The generalized classifier models built in this study for highly heterogeneous participants perform better than previous studies with similar data sets and diagnostic groups.

TLDR
Overall, the findings suggest that severity exists in ASD participants; informative features and classification models vary with the gender and severity in varying samples of ASD.
Discriminant Spatial Filtering Method (DSFM) for the identification and analysis of abnormal resting state brain activities
TLDR
The results in this paper clearly show that DSFM is a reliable diagnostic tool with interpretable results critical for the accurate understanding the etiological factors of neuro-psychological disorders like ADHD using rs-fMRI.
Energy landscape analysis of fMRI data from Schizophrenic and healthy subjects
Brain connectivity biomarkers are powerful tools for not only identifying neuropsychiatric disorders in patients but also validating treatment effectiveness. In this work, we used energy landscape

Socio-emotional impairments are key symptoms of Autism Spectrum Disorders. This work proposes to analyze the neuronal activity related to the discrimination of emotional prosodies in autistic
Atypical Facial Emotion Recognition in Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Exploratory Analysis on the Role of Task Demands
TLDR
Compared response accuracy and speed on a forced-choice FER task using neutral, happy, sad, disgust, anger, fear and surprise expressions under both timed and non-timed conditions in children with and without ASD, the results showed that emotion recognition accuracy was comparable in the two groups in the non- Timed condition.
Regularized Spatial Filtering Method (R-SFM) for detection of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) from resting-state functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (rs-fMRI)
TLDR
A regularization framework to obtain a robust estimation of the covariance matrices such that the effect of atypical samples is reduced is presented and R-SFM provides an accurate and reliable tool for detection of ADHD from BOLD rs-fMRI time series data.

Using regional homogeneity from functional MRI for diagnosis of ASD among males
TLDR
It is shown here that the classification performance can be improved by considering adults and adolescents separately by using Chi-square algorithm, and the number of features was reduced drastically to lower than 200 in contrast to the thousands of features that have been used in recent studies.
Identifying differences in brain activities and an accurate detection of autism spectrum disorder using resting state functional‐magnetic resonance imaging: A spatial filtering approach
TLDR
A new approach for detecting major differences in brain activities between Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) patients and neurotypical subjects using the resting state fMRI is presented and the classification performance obtained is found to be better when compared to earlier studies in the literature.
Resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging and neural network classified autism and control
TLDR
The present study indicates that an intrinsic connectivity matrix produced from rs-fMRI data could yield a possible biomarker of ASD and supports the view that altered network connectivity within the brain contributes to the neurobiology of ASD.

An accurate detection of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) from structural MRI using an Extended Metacognitive Radial Basis Function Neural Classifier (EMcRBFN) is presented.
Fractionation of social brain circuits in autism spectrum disorders.
TLDR
Using a novel whole-brain connectivity approach in functional magnetic resonance imaging, it is found that not only are decreases in connectivity most pronounced between regions of the social brain but also they are selective to connections between limbic-related brain regions involved in affective aspects of social processing from other parts of thesocial brain that support language and sensorimotor processes.
Aberrant functioning of the theory-of-mind network in children and adolescents with autism
TLDR
Disruptions in the brain circuitry underlying ToM in ASD are revealed at multiple levels, including decreased activation and decreased functional connectivity.
The Autism Brain Imaging Data Exchange: Towards Large-Scale Evaluation of the Intrinsic Brain Architecture in Autism
TLDR
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 intrinsic functional organization of the brain is altered in autism
TLDR
Using resting functional connectivity MRI (fcMRI), it is found that, in autism, there was altered functional organization of the network involved in social and emotional processing, but no group difference in the functional organizations of thenetwork involved in sustained attention and goal-directed cognition.
Abnormalities of intrinsic functional connectivity in autism spectrum disorders,
TLDR
It is indicated that ASD subjects show altered intrinsic connectivity within the default network, and connectivity between these structures is associated with specific ASD symptoms.

TLDR
Off‐label clinical rTMS use for therapeutic interventions in ASD without an investigational device exemption and outside of an IRB approved research trial is premature pending further, adequately powered and controlled trials.
