1 Reduced relationship to cortical white matter volume revealed by Tractography-based segmentation of the corpus callosum in young children with developmental delayObjective: The corpus callosum is the primary anatomical substrate for inter-hemispheric communication, which is important for a range of adaptive and cognitive behaviors in early development.

2 White matter microstructure and atypical visual orienting in 7 month-olds at risk for autismObjective: The authors sought to determine whether specific patterns of oculo-motor functioning and visual orientingcharacterize 7-month-old infants who later meet criteria for an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and to identify the neural correlates of these behaviors. Method:Data were collected from...2013-01-01

7 Noise-induced bias in low-direction diffusion tensor MRI: replication of Monte-Carlo simulation with in-vivo scansClinical neuroimaging studies involving diffusion tensor MRI (DTI) require precise estimation of diffusion properties for statistical analysis. Tensor derived measures such as fractional anisotropy (FA) and trace are often analyzed for hypothesis testing. Given the limited scanning time typically av...2007-01-01
8 Population-based fitting of medial shape models with correspondence optimizationA crucial problem in statistical shape analysis is establishing the correspondence of shape features across a population. While many solutions are easy to express using boundary representations, this has been a considerable challenge for medial representations. This paper uses a new 3-D medial model...2007-01-01
9 Abnormal vessel tortuosity as a marker of treatment response of malignant gliomas: preliminary reportDespite multiple advances in medical imaging, noninvasive monitoring of therapeutic efficacy for malignant gliomas remains problematic. An underutilized observation is that malignancy induces characteristic abnormalities of vessel shape. These characteristic shape abnormalities affect both capillari...2004-01-01
10 Images in neuroscience: Fetal and Neonatal Brain DevelopmentIn the top row of longitudinal T1-weighted magnetic resonance images of the same child (and same scale), note the dramatic increase in total brain size as well as in white matter intensity over early development. In the bottom row of diffusion tensor images, white matter tractography of a neonate, o...2006-01-01
11 Multivariate volume visualization through dynamic projectionsWe propose a multivariate volume visualization framework that tightly couples dynamic projections with a high-dimensional transfer function design for interactive volume visualization. We assume that the complex, high-dimensional data in the attribute space can be well-represented through a collecti...2014-01-01
12 Unbiased diffeomorphic atlas construction for computational anatomyConstruction of population atlases is a key issue in medical image analysis, and particularly in brain mapping. Large sets of images are mapped into a common coordinate system to study intra-population variability and inter-population differences, to provide voxel-wise mapping of functional sites, a...2004-01-01
13 Temporal and spatial development of axonal maturation and myelination of white matter in the developing brainBACKGROUND AND PURPOSE-Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) has been widely used to investigate the development of white matter (WM). However, information about this development in healthy children younger than 2 years of age is lacking, and most previous studies have only measured fractional anisotropy (...2009-01-01
14 Assessment of reliability of multi-site neuroimaging via traveling phantom studyThis paper describes a framework for quantitative analysis of neuroimaging data of traveling human phantoms used for cross-site validation.

16 Discordance of prenatal and neonatal brain development in twinsBackground: Discordance of birth weight has been observed in twin pairs, though little is known about prenatal and early neonatal discordance of head and brain size, and the role that zygosity and chorionicity play in discordances of early brain development in twins. Aims: To compare prenatal and ne...2009-01-01
17 Early postnatal development of corpus callosum and corticospinal white matter assessed with quantitative tractographyBACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The early postnatal period is perhaps the most dynamic phase of white matter development.

18 Constrained data decomposition and regression for analyzing healthy aging from fiber tract diffusion propertiesIt has been shown that brain structures in normal aging undergo significant changes attributed to neurodevelopmental and neurodegeneration processes as a lifelong, dynamic process.
