Researchers have developed a new method to map and track the function of brain circuits affected by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in boys using brain imaging. The technique will provide clinicians and therapists with a physical measure of the progress patients are making with behavioral and/or drug treatments. For the first time, doctors would be able to quantify how that brain circuit is working in their patients and assess the effectiveness of an intervention.
