In the present world, autism is a potential threat to child development. It is a non-curable developmental neural disorder that is featured by inconveniences in social interactions. It is marked by impaired communications, restricted and repetitive interests, and behaviours. The malfunctioning corpus callosum (CC) is the main culprit for autism. In this paper, we study CC to differentiate between autistic and control brains. To accomplish the study, image segmentation, edge detection, and morphological operation techniques are introduced. To note, comprehensive experiments on fMRI images demonstrate the efficiency of our work.
