Group by sex interaction effects in axial diffusivity across individuals. Individual’s mean axial diffusivity (AD) measures are plotted according to group and sex for the largest cluster (1) for which a significant (TFCE p < 0.05) group by sex interaction effect was observed. Cluster 1 incorporates regions of the genu and body of the corpus callosum as well as the right anterior and superior corona radiata. Across all six clusters, ASD males showed decreased AD compared to TD males while ASD females showed increased AD compared to TD females. Units for measures of AD are given in mm2/s
