Have you heard about these brain scans?

It is wonderful they can do this.
I have the same question for all the autism researchers when, how will this help my adult autistic son?

It sounds like it takes up to 5 hours of scanning to get the "map".
That's quite awhile for someone to lay still.
I'm sure the researchers and Drs. would know better than I how these maps could be used.
Here's the author's Twitter page. Maybe she could tell you who to talk to.

I also found the piece she referenced here: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/28757305

I'm guessing the mapping will tell them what areas of the brain are active while performing tasks, and that would likely differ for autistic patients.

Yeah... I know. Twitter is a little like a gymnasium full of people on soapboxes. They speak more than they listen and interact.

I messaged her on Twitter. Most don't respond.
