Functional connectivity results. A) Surface rendering showing frontal-temporal connections (regions of interest (ROIs) do not represent actual size) that revealed reduced functional connectivity in the autism spectrum disorder (ASD) group. B) Mean functional connectivity (Z’) in the frontal-temporal network for each group for intention and means conditions. Participants with ASD showed significantly reduced functional connectivity (P <0.01, corrected) relative to typically developing (TD) control participants in the intention condition, but not in the means condition. Error bars represent standard error of the mean.
