    Arch Gen Psychiatry 67:1052-60. 2010
    ..Recent diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) studies have indicated that white matter structure is aberrant in autism. To date, white matter structure has not been assessed in family members of children with autism...

    J Autism Dev Disord 37:976-82. 2007
    ..Results indicate that there is no relationship between IQ or selected CBCL subtests and maternal age, suggesting that maternal age does not influence the severity of autism as measured by these indicators...

    Am J Med Genet 114:24-30. 2002
    ..None of these subsets revealed significant deviation from the null expectation. Our interpretation of these findings is that it is unlikely that HoxA1 and HoxB1 play a significant role in the genetic predisposition to autism...
