He is BeYouTiful!! 💙💙💙 The term "be you" means so much more to an individual with autism, here's why... As far as general wiring goes, the brains of neurotypical individuals is fairly standardized. This is not the case for those diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Some studies have found that ASD brains have higher connectivity, while conflicting studies have concluded that they have fewer connections. A new study has utilized (fMRI) scans of resting individuals who were either neurotypical or diagnosed with ASD. The scans revealed the relative inter-hemispheric connectivity of different brain regions; that is, connections spanning both halves of the brain.
The inter-hemispheric connectivity for different regions of neurotypical brains appeared to be standardized. Scan after scan, the neurotypical brains showed uniform patterns in relative connectivity. Examining the ASD brains, however, was not as straightforward. While they all had some areas with over- or under-connectivity compared to the neurotypical brains, the regions where these occurred varied for every individual. There wasn’t much of a pattern when the scans were looked at as a group, but when an individual’s scan was compared to their list of ASD-related symptoms, very clear correlations were seen.
