Brief Report: Brain Mechanisms in Autism: Functional and Structural Abnormalities.
Minshew, Nancy J.
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v26 n2 p205-09 Apr 1996
This paper summarizes results of research on functional and structural abnormalities of the brain in autism. The current concept of causation is seen to involve multiple biologic levels. A consistent profile of brain function and dysfunction across methods has been found and specific neuropathologic findings have been found; but some research paradoxes still exist. (DB)
