By using a surface-based method (Freesurfer), the cortical thickness, hippocampal volume, and amygdala volume measurement were performed on adolescents with autism spectrum disorder (n=17) and age-matched typically developing controls (n=10). ASD patients showed a thicker cortex in temporal and occipital regions, a thinner cortex in frontal regions, and larger right hippocampal volume compared to the controls.
