Effect of age on fractional anisotropy across individuals. Mean fractional anisotropy (FA) measures for the cluster (Additional file 3: Table S1) showing a significant (TFCE p < 0.05) positive effect of age are plotted for each individual according to group and sex. This cluster incorporated a majority of all white matter tracts (Additional file 1: Figure S1). Increases in FA with age were observed across both groups (i.e., ASD and TD) and sexes (i.e., male and female). Coefficients of determination (R2) for goodness of fit are provided. Shaded region indicates 95% confidence interval
