On the cover: Source – Hum Brain Mapp. 2012 Apr 16. doi: 10.1002/ hbm.22086. [Epub ahead of print] Atypical brain activation patterns during a face-to-face joint attention game in adults with autism spectrum disorder. Redcay E, Dodell-Feder D, Mavros PL, Kleiner M, Pearrow MJ, Triantafyllou C, Gabrieli JD, Saxe R. Brain activation (fMRI) in young adults with typical development (top row) or autism spectrum disorders (bottom row) for live, face-to-face joint (shared) attention with another person via video while participant brains were being scanned relative to a condition when attention was not shared between the participant and the other person. Reduced activation in ASD group suggests possible failure of developmental neural specialization for joint attention. Figure created by Elizabeth Redcay
