Researchers show how the brain re-wires and fine tunes its connections differently, depending on the relative timing of sensory information.
This shows MRI images from a neurotypical control (left) and an adult with complete agenesis of the corpus callosum (right).

An Autism Connection

A new study links agenesis of the corpus callosum with high incidences of autism.
This shows the receptors.

New Clue to Autism Found Inside Brain Cells

Problems with memory formation, social interactions and higher level thinking in people with autism may be partially attributed to the activity of receptors in the brain, a new study suggests.
