Abstract : The goal of this project is to use recently developed 3D shape acquisition technologies and advanced computational techniques to define the autism face and determine whether there is a statistically significant facial phenotype. During this report period, we had generated a set of precise, highly replicable 3D anthropometric data for core ASD children and age-matched, typically developing controls, which has not previously been done. We had conducted 3D and 2D facial pattern analysis and study results suggest that there are subgroups of individuals with ASD that display distinct facial phenotypes.
