Brief Report: Neuroanatomic Observations of the Brain in Pervasive Developmental Disorders.
Bauman, Margaret L.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n2 p199-203 Apr 1996
This paper reviews neuroanatomic studies on syndromes classified as Pervasive Developmental Disorders. Findings in autism and Asperger's syndrome suggest that these two disorders may represent a continuum along a neurobiological spectrum with a common neuroanatomic substrate, while Rett syndrome appears to be clinically and anatomically distinct from the other two.
