Our Autistic brain differences series covers the various anatomical and functional differences of the autistic brain compared to the neurotypical brain.
Research indicates autistic people not only show differences in their brains, but in their blood vessels as well, such as a greater amount of blood vessel growth.
Here we explore the research on the cerebellum and its particular functioning in autism, and how this affects motor control and cognitive functions.
The cerebrum is like the processor of the brain, so it should come as no surprise that the cerebrum of the autistic brain features some significant differences.
Every non-autistic brain is (roughly) like every non-autistic brain. But no autistic brain is like any other autistic brain!
