Figure 1

Task-related deactivations - the neural response to the control task versus the Embedded Figures Task condition, in controls (n = 40), unaffected siblings (n = 40) and adolescents with autism (n = 38). Activation maps indicate neural response to CT versus EFT conditions, corrected for multiple comparisons at whole brain P <0.05 FWE-corrected overlaid onto the canonical MNI152 template brain image (axial section, z-coordinate indicated in MNI space), with the colored bar indicating the T-value of the plotted activation differences. CT, control task; EFT, Embedded Figures Task; FWE, family-wise error; MNI, Montreal Neurological Institute.
