Abnormalities in functional connectivity have been reported within the default mode network (DMN) in autism spectrum disorder (ASD). This study uses diffusion spectrum imaging tractography to evaluate the white matter integrity of the white matter fiber tracts connecting the brain regions of the DMN in ASD. Differences between ASD and typically developing controls are subtle but show heterogeneity in structural connectivity.
