If you have a question about this talk, please contact Elizabeth Weir.

Over the past two decades, neuroimaging studies have revealed differences in brain structure and intrinsic function between people with autism and neurotypical controls, but there is also high heterogeneity in reported results.

In this talk, I will discuss some of my work in this area by taking a systems-level perspective. First, I will illustrate how the brain is organized by its past, e.g., evolutionary and ontogenetic processes. Then, I will discuss how this can help understand observations of brain structural differences and their functional consequences in the context of autism. Finally, I will discuss the possible implications for environmental plasticity within this framework.
