A unique behavioral feature differentiates 7 month-old high-risk infants later classified with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) from similar-aged infants who do not develop ASD. What is that behavioral feature?
The association between which white matter fiber tract and visual orienting latencies (overlap condition of the eye tracking paradigm) significantly differed between the low-risk group and the high-risk infants later classified with ASD, and subsequently implicates this structure in the early development of ASD?
The diagnostic features of ASD emerge or unfold over time. What is the significance of identifying features that differentiate infants who will later develop ASD prior to the consolidation of the diagnostic profile?
