ASD: Autism Spectrum Disorder; CC: corpus callosum; Cing: cingulum; DAF: direct segment of the arcuate fasciculus; IAAF: indirect anterior segment of the arcuate fasciculus; IPAF: indirect posterior segment of the arcuate fasciculus. r: Pearson’s correlation coefficient.
 * Statistically significant at the threshold uncorrected p < .05.
 ** Significance level at the threshold uncorrected p < .01.
