Detektere autisme via EEG

Publisert: Wednesday, June 27, 2012

Ny forskning tyder på at man kanskje kan detektere autisme via EEG.

A simple brain trace can identify autism in children as young as two years old, scientists believe.

A US team at Boston Children's Hospital say EEG traces, which record electrical brain activity using scalp electrodes, could offer a diagnostic test for this complex condition.

EEG clearly distinguished children with autism from other peers in a trial involving nearly 1,000 children.
