About the collection

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.

This Collection welcomes submission of original Research Articles and Reviews. 

Should you wish to submit a different article type, please read our submission guidelines to confirm that type is accepted by the journal. Articles for this Collection should be submitted via our submission system, Snapp. During the submission process you will be asked whether you are submitting to a Collection, please select "Neuroimaging in Autism Spectrum Disorders" from the dropdown menu.

Articles will undergo the journal’s standard peer-review process and are subject to all of the journal’s standard policies. Articles will be added to the Collection as they are published.

The Editors have no competing interests with the submissions which they handle through the peer review process. The peer review of any submissions for which the Editors have competing interests is handled by another Editorial Board Member who has no competing interests.
