Neuroimaging remains the only viable way to study in-vivo central nervous biology in non-invasive ways. While great progress has been made in understanding the neurobiology associated with neurodiversity, autism and broader neurodevelopmental conditions, significant challenges remain. There is enormous heterogeneity in these populations as well as in the methods used to study them. How some of this fundamental research translates to insights and how we involve the community in both the research and the translational process are all of vital importance.
The aim of this Collection is to showcase the depth and breadth of how the research community is tackling these challenges in the context of in-vivo neuroimaging of the brain in autistic individuals and broader neurodevelopmental conditions.
