Figure 2

Free glutamate and glutamine concentrations in the ACC from brains of control and autistic subjects. There were no significant differences in either glutamate or glutamine concentrations between the two groups. The ratio of glutamate to glutamine (Glu/Gln) was significantly lower in the autistic subjects than in controls (U = 16.0, *P = 0.022). Abbreviations: Conc, concentration; Gln, glutamine; Glu, glutamate; ns, not significant.
