Jocelyn V. Hull, Lisa B. Dokovna, Zachary J. Jacokes, Carinna M. Torgerson, Andrei Irimia, John Darrell Van Horn
2017 Frontiers in Psychiatry  
Ongoing debate exists within the resting-state functional MRI (fMRI) literature over how intrinsic connectivity is altered in the autistic brain, with reports of general overconnectivity, under-connectivity  ...  Further differences in reported results may be attributable to the age and sex of participants included, designs of the resting-state scan, and to the analysis technique used to evaluate the data.  ...  The study demonstrated that TNN deactivation did not occur between resting-state and task-associated fMRI for ASD subjects (48) .  ...
