This series of studies explored the operant response rates for pup-reinforcement of female Sprague Dawley rats that were either postpartum or cycling and sustained lesions of the medial preoptic area (mpoa), the lateral amygdala, the nucleus accumbens, or sham lesions. The last experiment tested the effects on operant responding of preventing direct access(More)
Longitudinal characterization of early brain growth in-utero has been limited by a number of challenges in fetal imaging, the rapid change in size, shape and volume of the developing brain, and the consequent lack of suitable algorithms for fetal brain image analysis. There is a need for an improved digital brain atlas of the spatiotemporal maturation of(More)
The development and identification of best methods in fetal brain MRI analysis is crucial as we expect an outburst of studies on groupwise and longitudinal analysis of early brain development in the upcoming years. To address this critical need, in this paper, we have developed a mathematical framework for the construction of an unbiased deformable(More)
PURPOSE Current diagnosis of fetal posterior fossa anomalies by sonography and conventional MRI is limited by fetal position, motion, and by two-dimensional (2D), rather than three-dimensional (3D), representation. In this study, we aimed to validate the use of a novel magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique, 3D super-resolution motion-corrected MRI, to(More)
Diffusivity of water molecules estimated from diffusion weighted MRI (DW-MRI) is an important biomarker to pinpoint regions with restricted diffusion such as inflamed bowel regions in patients with Crohn's Disease (CD). There is a need to fuse the information extracted from DW-MRI with other image modalities, e.g. structural T1w images, for more accurate(More)
