Atypical cortical activation during fine motor tasks in autism spectrum disorder

Individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) often have difficulty with coordinated fine motor skills, but the degree of difficulty significantly varies from person to person. To elucidate the cause of this diversity, we monitored brain activity during fine movement tasks (tying bowknots) by near-infrared spectroscopy in 17 adults with ASD and 18 adults with typical development matched for age, gender, and intelligence quotient (IQ). We also examined the relationship between brain activation…
