Abstract

Frequently individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have been noted with a larger head circumference (HC) than their typical developing peers. Biologic hypotheses suggest that an overly rapid brain growth leads to the core symptoms of ASD by impairing connectivity. Literature is divided however where deleterious, protective and null associations of HC with ASD symptoms in individuals with ASD have been found.

Score in context

This research output has an Altmetric score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This score was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 24 September 2013.
All research outputs
#1,392,682
of 3,629,910 outputs
Outputs from PLoS ONE
#21,348
of 64,079 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#28,965
of 91,993 outputs
Outputs of similar age from PLoS ONE
#1,345
of 3,779 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 3,629,910 research outputs across all sources so far. This one has received more attention than most of these and is in the 61st percentile.
So far Altmetric has tracked 64,079 research outputs from this source. They typically receive more attention than average, with a mean score of 8.3. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 66% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this score to the 91,993 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 68% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 3,779 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 63% of its contemporaries.
