Fig. 1

Histograms of symmetry index and age × diagnosis interaction plots. a Depicts histograms of symmetry index (adjusted for age and IQs) for ASD (red) and TDC (blue) for fusiform volume, surface area, and cortical thickness. Group means are presented by the green crosshair. Group mean differences were significant for volume p = 0.031 and surface area p = 0.031. b Depicts symmetry index across age range for cross-sectional data (adjusted for IQs). Age × diagnosis interaction was significant for surface area p = 0.049). Linear fit indicates a trend of decreasing leftward asymmetry with age toward symmetry for ASD and a change from nearly symmetric to leftward asymmetric for TDC
