Individual brain activity profiles within each clinical group. For each brain region, the significant activations (p < 0.05corr) associated with set-shifting are shown, for each clinical group. The activity profiles reveal a shared pattern of sustained parietal activity in all three groups, late and limited prefrontal activity in ASD and ADHD, and sustained frontal activity in OCD. Other regions (pre- and supplemental motor cortices and temporal regions) do not show similarities across groups.
