Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v30 n6 p511-17 Dec 2000

Findings indicate a positive linear relationship between a patient's total number of tubers and degree of intellectual impairment. The number of tubers in the cerebellum was associated with more autistic behaviors. (Contains references.) (CR)
