Figure 3: Decreased fractional anisotropy and increased mean diffusivity in participants with autism spectrum disorder compared to normal controls. TBSS analysis revealed that participants with autism spectrum disorder showed widespread fractional anisotropy reductions in major white matter tracts (a), while they showed increased mean diffusivity in similar white matter tracts (b). For each statistical analysis, significance level was set at P < 0.05, TFCE-corrected. For visualization purpose, significant regions were thickened using tbss_fill. R: Right, L: Left, ART: Anterior thalamic radiation, CG: Cingulum, CST: corticospinal tract, FMJ: Forceps major, IFO: inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus, IFL: Inferior longitudinal fasciculus, SLF: Superior longitudinal fasciculus, and UF: Uncinate fasciculus[32]
