Abstract

Date Presented 4/16/2015

Unusual eating behavior is highly prevalent in autism spectrum disorder (ASD); it is unclear whether sensory aspects underlie these behaviors. Findings from this functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) study with adolescents aged 11 to 17 yr with ASD will inform the types of behavioral strategies that may be effective in interventions for eating behavior in ASD.
