It includes a survey of the major neural theories of autism (medial temporal lobe hypothesis, the cerebellar hypothesis, the frontostriatal hypothesis, and evidence from neuroimaging and neuropsychology), and a summary of research suggestions (neuroimaging in a cognitive context, functional connectivity from neuroimaging, and cluster analysis of autistic symptoms).
