— Many disorders that affect the brain can cause shape changes in subcortical structures, and these may provide biomarkers for disease detection and progression. Automatic tools are needed to accurately identify and characterize these alterations. In recent work, we developed a surface multivariate tensor-based morphometry analysis (mTBM) to detect(More)
Preterm neonates are at higher risk of neurocognitive and neurosensory abnormalities. While numerous studies have looked at the effect of prematurity on brain anatomy, none to date have attempted to understand the relative pose of subcortical structures and to assess its potential as a biomarker of abnormal growth. Here, we perform the first relative pose(More)
Characterization of the developing brain during early childhood is of interest for both neuroscience and medicine, and in particular, is key to understanding what goes wrong in neurodevelopmental disorders. In particular, the cortex grows rapidly in the first 3 years of life, and creating a normative atlas can provide a comparison tool to diagnose disorders(More)
