- Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder symptoms moderate cognition and behavior in children with autism spectrum disordersBenjamin E Yerys
Children s Research Institute Neuroscience, Children s National Medical Center, Washington, District of Columbia 20010, USA
Autism Res 2:322-33. 2009..Therefore, ADHD may moderate the expression of components of the ASD cognitive and behavioral phenotype, but ASD+ADHD may not represent an etiologically distinct phenotype from ASD alone...

Department of Psychology, Georgetown University, Washington, DC 20057, USA
Cereb Cortex 19:1787-94. 2009..This discrepancy suggests an atypical developmental trajectory in ASD for right IFC connectivity with other neural regions supporting response inhibition...
- Interests in high-functioning autism are more intense, interfering, and idiosyncratic than those in neurotypical developmentLaura Gutermuth Anthony

- Default mode network segregation and social deficits in autism spectrum disorder: Evidence from non-medicated childrenBenjamin E Yerys

Neuroimage Clin 9:223-32. 2015..This study confirms the potential for the functional connection of the midline core as an endophenotype for social deficits. Poor segregation of the default mode network is consistent with an excitation/inhibition imbalance model of ASD...
