An unanswered question concerning the neural basis of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) is how sensorimotor deficits in individuals with ASD are related to abnormalities of brain function. We previously described a robotic joystick and video game system that allows us to record functional magnetic resonance images (FMRI) while adult humans make goaldirected wrist motions. We anticipated several challenges in extending this approach to studying goal-directed behaviors in children with ASD and in… CONTINUE READING
