Meta-regression shows that the activation of two brain regions in ASD individuals were significantly associated with chronological age; as age increases: a the right cerebellar crus I was more activated and b the left inferior temporal gyrus was less activated. Of note, the significant correlation between increasing age and increasing activation in the right cerebellum crus I was driven by two studies (data represented by the two orange dots lying on the left end of the x-axis). The interpretation of this significant correlation should be treated with caution. (Note: Studies that reported a peak in these two regions were included in the calculation; each of these studies is represented as a dot; larger dots represent larger sample sizes)
