Abstract

Autism Spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder associated with deficits in executive function, language, emotions and social communication (Coben et al, 2008). In this current investigation, the main purpose was to analyse the brain electrically activity frequency in children with ASD and normal individual (without evident neurological disorders) and compare the recurring patterns in ASD and normal individuals. The specific objective is to investigate the difference in quantitative EEG findings in ten individual diagnosed with ASD and ten normal individuals. Robert Coben and his colleagues have been able to distinguish autistic children from neurotypical children by looking at the quantitative electroencephalogram (qEEG) alone, with a success rate of 88%.4 (Rondeau, 2005-2010). Through qEEG, or brain mapping, we are able to measure (quantify) the electrical activity summation in a given region of the brain to localize the area of dysfunction.
