LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Brain imaging might someday help in diagnosing Autism.
Researchers at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia say kids with Autism-Spectrum disorder process sound and language a fraction of a second slower than other kids. The delay is described about as long as a blink-of-an-eye.
Researchers say that they can see it with brain imaging called MEG, which detects magnetic fields in the brain. The science has a long way to go, but researchers think it might someday become a standardized way to diagnose Autism, even in infancy.
