White matter development during late adolescence in healthy males: A cross-sectional diffusion tensor imaging study
TLDR
We investigated WM development in healthy adolescent males through age-associated changes in fractional anisotropy (FA), radial (lambda( perpendicular)) and axial diffusivity of several clusters along the arcuate fasciculus through a whole-brain voxelwise analysis. Expand
