  • Rett Syndrome And Autism Spectrum Analysis

    This study look at the comparison of children with autism spectrum disorder and children with developmental delays (Xiao et al., 2014). It was found that children with autism spectrum disorder have a larger volume of white matter, or myelinated axons, than children with a developmental delay. This was consistent with previous findings that used children without any type of disability as their control (Xiao et al., 2014). The study also found that grey matter volume in the child with autism spectrum disorder was “localized in the right superior temporal gyrus of the temporal lobe,” which is where the primary auditory cortex is found as well as Wernicke’s area, where speech processing occurs. White matter volume in children with autism spectrum disorder was greater “in the superior temporal gyrus, left middle temporal gyrus, right insula, and right Heschl’s gyrus” (Xiao et al., 2014). Some functions of these areas include: left middle temporal gyrus assists in face recognition and distance perception and the right insula is thought to play a role in consciousness. These differences suggest that the cognitive and behavioral symptoms associated with autism are related to the difference in neuroanatomy in a child with autism spectrum disorder (Xiao et al., 2014). Rodent models are also helpful when we want to look at the expressed behavior of a certain disorder. Kim et al. (2016) researched repetitive behaviors, a key feature of autism spectrum disorder, in mice. Although this…
