Special MRI Scan Technology Shows Autism

Special MRI scan technology shows fifteen different neurological circuits in the brain. Developed neurological connections show in red as opposed to less developed show in blue with this technology. Scans reveal significant differences in infants later diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. Scott Pallet, the pioneer of this technology hopes this will improve early diagnoses to improve outcomes, with earlier interventions. The very first individual scanned by this technology was Temple Grandin, world renowned self-advocate who is on the autism spectrum.
