Functional magnetic resonance imaging or functional MRI (fMRI) is a state-of-the-art functional neuroimaging technique (non-invasive) that measures brain activity by detecting associated changes in blood flow. fMRI is increasingly playing a key role in providing a deeper insight into brain function and or functional brain networks. There are several novel clinical applications of clinical fMRI. Indeed, fMRI brain functional imaging, can unlock the deepest secrets of the living brain, consequently plays a key role in modern mental health treatment and psychiatric methods.
• Children with autism show increased brain gray and white matter volume.
• Children with FXS with the autism behavioral phenotype show increased brain volume.
• Children with Williams’s syndrome with no autism display decreased brain volume.
• Increased brain volume is associated with the autism phenotype in children.
