The dynamic anatomical sequence of human cortical gray matter development between the age of 4-21 years using quantitative four-dimensional maps and time-lapse sequences reveals that higher-order association cortices mature only after lower-order somatosensory and visual cortices are developed.

A significant, nonlinear decline in GMD with age is found over dorsal frontal and parietal association cortices on both the lateral and interhemispheric surfaces, indicating that the posterior temporal cortices have a more protracted course of maturation than any other cortical region.

The utility of structural imaging and other markers will be increased by standardization of acquisition and analysis methods, and by development of robust algorithms for automated assessment, as well as by research into other imaging and nonimaging markers.

For the first time, developmental changes in gray matter thickness, brain size, and structure-function relationships have been traced within the same individuals studied longitudinally during a time of rapid cognitive development.
Mapping brain asymmetry
Brain-mapping approaches show great promise for assessing factors that modulate cognitive specialization in the brain, including the ontogeny, phylogeny and genetic determinants of brain asymmetry.
Dynamics of Gray Matter Loss in Alzheimer's Disease
This degenerative sequence, observed in vivo as it developed, provides the first quantitative, dynamic visualization of cortical atrophic rates in normal elderly populations and in those with dementia.
In vivo evidence for post-adolescent brain maturation in frontal and striatal regions
The pattern of brain maturation during these years was distinct from earlier development, and was localized to large regions of dorsal, medial and orbital frontal cortex and lenticular nuclei, with relatively little change in any other location.

This paper introduces a robust, learning-based brain extraction system (ROBEX), which combines a discriminative and a generative model to achieve the final result and shows that ROBEX provides significantly improved performance measures for almost every method/dataset combination.
