Full article at http://neurosciencenews.com/autism-cerebellum-sensoriomotor-connections-1836/.

Researchers find that in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorder, the connections between the cerebral cortex and the cerebellum appear to be overdeveloped in sensorimotor regions of the brain.

The research is in Biological Psychiatry. (full access paywall)
