  • Time Reproduction Performance Is Associated With Age and Working Memory in High-Functioning Youth With Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Time Reproduction Performance Is Associated With Age and Working Memory in High‐Functioning Youth With Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Time reproduction accuracy (average coefficient of accuracy) and consistency (standard deviation of the coefficient of accuracy) for the five target durations (4, 8, 12, 16, and 20) by diagnosis (autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and control). For accuracy, values of 1 represent perfect accuracy and anything less than 1 is an underestimation of the target duration. For consistency, lower values indicate more consistent responding whereas higher values indicate greater variability.

  • Motor Learning in Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorder: Activation in Superior Parietal Lobule Related to Learning and Repetitive Behaviors

    Motor Learning in Individuals With Autism Spectrum Disorder: Activation in Superior Parietal Lobule Related to Learning and Repetitive Behaviors

    Increased activation of the right superior parietal lobule (SPL), extending into the precuneus, primary somatosensory cortex (SM1), and intraparietal suclus in individuals with typical development compared with individuals with ASD during the motor learning task (sequence vs. nonsequence contrast) (P < 0.001, peak activation: x = 22, y = −46, z = 62, cluster size k = 183).

    Left‐Hemispheric Microstructural Abnormalities in Children With High‐Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder

    Regions where mean diffusivity is elevated in high-functioning autism spectrum disorder (HF-ASD). The colored regions correspond to the atlas regions that survive the initial P < 0.05 threshold test.

Treatment Research in ASD

Autism Treatment Research
Anthony Bailey
Editorial

Since the launch of Autism Research, there have been exciting advances in the genetics and neuroscience of autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Concomitantly, there has been a significant increase in the number of well-designed and controlled treatment studies, reflecting both the development of new, more effective developmental and behavioral interverntions, as well as pressure for research that addresses the immediate needs of affected individuals.

Improvement in Social Deficits in Autism Spectrum Disorders Using a Theatre-Based, Peer-Mediated Intervention
Blythe A. Corbett, Deanna M. Swain, Catherine Coke, David Simon, Cassanda Newsom, Nea Houchins-Juarez, Ashley Jenson, Lily Wang, Yanna Song
Research Article

Social Emotional NeuroScience Endocrinology Theatre is a novel intervention program aimed at improving reciprocal social interaction in youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) using behavioral strategies and theatrical techniques in a peer-mediated model. Previous research using a 3-month model sowed improvement in face perception, social interaction, and reductions in stress. The current study assessed a 2-week summer camp model. Typically developing peers were trained and paired with ASD youth (8-17 years). READ MORE...
