I know it has shown in the literature that autism disorder affects brain network connectivity based on rs-fMRI data (Plitt, Barnes, & Martin, 2015). They have local over-connectivity but long-distance underconnectivity.

Does ASD affect dynamic of brain networks, such that has an impact on the temporal analysis? What about its effect on frequency analysis? I wanted to have a whole brain, multilayer brain network analysis of autism disorders and wanted to know which one is better to build my multilayer model based on.

    $\begingroup$ Welcome to Psychology.SE. With "autism disorder affects brain network connectivity based on rs-fMRI data. they have local over-connectivity" to help others reading, could you please provide references to back this up? I am not in a pure neuroscience field but would be interested to read about this. Plus, questions and answers with citations backing claims tend to get up-voted as good questions and answers. For some tips, maybe you would like to read the site's tour and good question tips $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 21, 2018 at 11:07
