Using neuroimaging and histology to understand hyperexcitability and atypical connectivity in autism spectrum disorder

Abstract:

The aim of this thesis was to better understand hyperexcitability and atypical connectivity in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) by using a combination of neuroimaging and histology techniques. Three regions of interest were of particular interest: primary visual cortex, the fusiform gyrus, and dorsolateral prefrontal cortex. These functionally diverse regions have previously been implicated in ASD, and one of the goals was to determine whether the disorder is better characterized by primary ...
