Effect of group on fractional anisotropy measures across individuals. Mean fractional anisotropy (FA) measures within the largest cluster (i.e., cluster 1) showing a significant (TFCE p < 0.05) effect of group (ASD > TD) are plotted for each individual according to group and sex. Cluster 1 incorporates bilateral regions of the middle and superior cerebellar peduncles, corticospinal tract, cerebral peduncle, and internal capsule as well as left corona radiata, thalamic radiation, external capsule, fornix, superior longitudinal fasciculus and fronto-occipital fasciculus. Of note, both males and females with ASD diagnoses show increased FA compared to TD males and females
