Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex and heterogeneous neurodevelopmental disorder affecting communication and behavior, and is associated with a wide range of symptoms and severity. Although differences in neurologic structure and development of individuals with ASD are seen compared to controls subjects, auditory evoked potential (AEP) literature shows mixed results. In this study, we used age- and gender-matched controls and found differences in individuals with ASD compared to their neurotypical peers. These differences involved brainstem and cortical auditory pathways.
