The neuronal mechanisms of these symptoms remain unclear though. Using fMRI, we investigate the resting state's temporal structure in the frequency domain (scale-free activity as measured with Power-Law Exponent, PLE, and Spectral Entropy, SE) and temporal variance (neural variability) in high-functioning, adult ASD comparing them with sch...

This study] used a simple and transparent design to report novel data on later-born within- and cross-condition recurrence of ASD and ADHD in a way that is useful in the clinic but also motivates research to understand how and why these conditions commonly co-occur both within individuals and wi thin families,” wrote Tony Charman, Ph.D., of King’s College London and Emily Jones, Ph.D., of the University of London in anaccompanying editorial.To read more about this topic, see thePsychiatric News article “Study Examines Connections Between Psychiatric, Neurological Disorders. ”(Image: iStock/romrodink...
