Baby brain scans may reveal autism risk: study
The latest study was carried out in 106 infants at high risk of ASD, which runs in families, and 42 low-risk peers.
It found faster growth of the cortical surface at six and 12 months of age of infants who were later diagnosed with ASD at 24 months, compared to non-affected children.
Based on their findings, the team developed a computer algorithm to predict, with an accuracy of about 80 percent, which infants will develop ASD.
Fifteen children in the trial had a positive diagnosis at 24 months.
"Our study shows that early brain development biomarkers could be very useful in identifying babies at the highest risk for autism before behavioural symptoms emerge," said the study's senior author Joseph Piven of the University of North Carolina.

2. Good thing nothing will ever happen to a womans "right to choose".
The more and more different markers show a possibility of a problem, she's got her excuse for some retroactive birth control. Just like the zika "scare", if a woman wakes up with a mosquito bite after having gotten "intimate" on the beach last night, better not even take a chance, just go to Planned Parenthood and get her card punched again, after 10 abortions, the 11th is free. (or so I've heard).
