Brain age prediction based on neuroimaging data could help characterize both the typical brain development and neuropsychiatric disorders. Pattern recognition models built upon functional connectivity (FC) measures derived from resting state fMRI (rsfMRI) data have been successfully used to predict the brain age. However, most existing studies focus on coarse-grained FC measures between brain regions or intrinsic connectivity networks (ICNs), which may sacrifice fine-grained FC information of…

Predicting Brain Age Based on Spatial and Temporal Features of Human Brain Functional Networks

This study employed resting-state functional MRI data to construct functional network models and observed that individual's functional network architecture was shaped by intrinsic component, age-related component and other components and the predictive models extracted sufficient information to provide comparatively accurate predictions of brain age.

Individualized Prediction of Brain Network Interactions using Deep Siamese Networks

It is shown, for the first time, that the interaction between RSNs can uniquely characterize individual subjects and a novel approach called BrainNet is proposed, a deep Siamese-based 3D convolutional neural network that learns to compare subjects by capturing the interactions between brain networks.

Harmonization of multi-site functional connectivity measures in tangent space improves brain age prediction

Comparison results have demonstrated that the best brain age prediction performance was achieved by the prediction model built on the multi-scale functional connectivity measures that were harmonized in tangent space, indicating that multi- scalefunctional connectivity measures provided richer information than those computed at any single scales.

Connectome-based predictive models using resting-state fMRI for studying brain aging

Connectome-based predictive modeling via resting-state fMRI is a potential robust predictor for determining an individual’s chronological age from changes in the brain.

Predicting Body Mass Index From Structural MRI Brain Images Using a Deep Convolutional Neural Network

The results imply that predicting BMI from structural brain scans using DL represents a promising approach to investigate the relationship between brain morphological variability and individual differences in body weight and provide a new scope for future investigations regarding the potential clinical utility of brain-predicted BMI.

Brain Age Estimation From MRI Using Cascade Networks With Ranking Loss

Using the brain age gap between brain age and chronological age as a biomarker, Alzheimer’s disease and Mild Cognitive Impairment can be distinguished from healthy control (HC) subjects by support vector machine (SVM).

Ayu-Characterization of healthy aging from neuroimaging data with deep learning and rsfMRI

An age prediction pipeline Ayu is proposed which consists of data preprocessing, feature selection, and an attention-based model for deep learning architecture for brain age assessment and reveals that dynamic FC tends to slow down and becomes less complex and more random with increasing age.

Estimating brain age based on a healthy population with deep learning and structural MRI

A large-scale heterogeneous dataset of structural brain MRIs in a healthy population from multiple publicly-available sources is curated, upon which a deep learning model for brain age estimation is trained, confirming the efficacy of deep learning and the added utility of training with data both in larger number and more uniformly distributed than in previous studies.

Characterizing Functional Connectivity Differences in Aging Adults using Machine Learning on Resting State fMRI Data

It is revealed that differences in intrinsic connectivity as measured with rs-fMRI exist between subjects, and that SVM methods are capable of detecting and utilizing these differences for classification and prediction.

Prediction of Individual Brain Maturity Using fMRI

Support vector machine-based multivariate pattern analysis extracts sufficient information from fcMRI data to make accurate predictions about individuals’ brain maturity across development, and prediction of individual brain maturity as a functional connectivity maturation index is allowed.

A Brain-Wide Study of Age-Related Changes in Functional Connectivity.

The results show that aging has a large impact on connectivity within functional networks but also on connectivity between the different functional networks in the brain, and a brain-wide analysis approach seems fundamental in understanding how age affects integration of information.
