Sex differences in brain morphometry in childhood autism. Girls and boys with ASD showed significant differences in brain structure. Notably, brain areas which showed sex differences in ASD fell into two general functional systems: the motor system and systems that form part of the “social brain.” These brain areas include the left motor cortex, left SMA, left lingual/fusiform gyrus, left angular gyrus, right insula, bilateral cerebellum, and bilateral amygdala. They showed high classification accuracies (CA > 85 %) for distinguishing girls from boys with ASD. CA value given for a set of contiguous voxels corresponds to the highest classification accuracy among those voxels
