Abstract

Abstract Background There has been sustained clinical and cognitive neuroscience research interest in how network correlates of brain-behaviour relationships might be altered in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other neurodevelopmental disorders. As previous work has mostly focused on adults, the nature of whole-brain connectivity networks underlying intelligence in pediatric cohorts with abnormal neurodevelopment requires further investigation. Methods We used network-based statistics (NBS) to examine the association between resting-state functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) connectivity and fluid intelligence ability in male children ( n =50) with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD;..
