Brain overgrowth dictates autism severity, new research suggests

  • Toddlers with autism showed a correlation between abnormal BCO growth and disease presentation, leading to more severe social and language symptoms and larger brain structure on MRI.
  • Alysson Muotri, Ph.D., emphasized that bigger brains do not always equate to better outcomes in autism, as the severity of autism in toddlers was linked to rapid BCO growth and excess neurons.
  • Researchers discovered that toddlers with autism had significantly larger BCOs, about 40% more, compared to neurotypical peers, leading to atypical brain volume in social, language, and sensory areas.
