Increased hippocampal shape asymmetry and volumetric ventricular asymmetry in autism spectrum disorder.

Therefore, the present study utilizes a large-scale, multi-site database to investigate asymmetries in the amygdala, hippocampus, and lateral ventricles, given the potential involvement of these regions in ASD.

Results reveal significant asymmetries in the hippocampus and the ventricles, but not in the amygdala, in individuals with ASD.

We observe a significant increase in shape asymmetry in the hippocampus, as well as increased volumetric asymmetry in the lateral ventricles in individuals with ASD.
