Autism and ADHD are both considered neurodevelopmental conditions. The idea is that differences in early brain development impact both structure (volume, cortical thickness, white matter integrity) and function (which connections and brain areas are in use) of the brain. We wanted to map differences among in both children and adults with an autism and/or ADHD diagnosis. Moreover, we were interested whether in a typical population similar associations between symptomatology and brain structure would be observed. Lastly, we wanted to know whether the aging brain of autistic adults would differ from the aging brain of non-autistic adults. This way we wanted to examine whether aging had a different impact.
For now: See for the findings our papers. This will be added in the near future.
