Resilience to targeted attacks. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is characterized by significantly higher network resilience to targeted attacks, indicating a higher degree of functional degeneracy (see discussion for details). This difference is consistent in both ASD subgroups (with and without TSC). Only the lower alpha band is shown. A sample bar plot of the global efficiency of the network after removal of three nodes is inserted (top right).
