Could a Single Brain Scan Predict Autism Among High-risk Infants?

A neuroimaging scan at age 6 months may accurately predict autism spectrum disorder (ASD) among high-risk infants.

Overall, the study team found 974 functional connections in the 6-month-olds’ brains that were associated with autism-related behaviors.
