Background: Conduct disorder (CD) is a mental disorder diagnosed in childhood or adolescence that presents antisocial behaviors, and is associated with structural alterations in brain. However, whether these structural alterations can distinguish CD from healthy controls (HCs) remains unknown. Here, we quantified these structural differences and explored the classification ability of these quantitative features based on machine learning (ML). Materials and Methods: High-resolution 3D structural…

Multivoxel pattern analysis of structural MRI in children and adolescents with conduct disorder

The aim of the present study was to characterize different spatial patterns in grey matter, which may eventually serve as potential reliable imaging biomarkers in the classification of CD from healthy controls (HCs), and assess the classification ability of such structural difference.

Three dimensional convolutional neural network-based classification of conduct disorder with structural MRI

The classification results indicated that deep learning-based method is able to explore the hidden features from the sMRI of CD and might assist clinicians in the diagnosis of CD.

Gray Matter Changes in the Orbitofrontal-Paralimbic Cortex in Male Youths With Non-comorbid Conduct Disorder

Conduct disorder is one of the most common developmental psychiatric disorders which is characterized by persistent aggressive and antisocial behaviors during childhood or adolescence. Previous

Brain structure abnormalities in adolescent girls with conduct disorder

Structural abnormalities in brain regions involved in emotion processing, reward and empathy in female adolescents with CD broadly overlap with those reported in previous studies of CD in male adolescents.

Increased structural connectivity in corpus callosum in adolescent males with conduct disorder.

Abnormalities of cortical structures in adolescent-onset conduct disorder

The present study indicates that AO-CD is characterized by cortical structural abnormalities in the paralimbic system, and, in particular, it highlights the potential role of deficient structures including the precuneus and PCC in the etiology of Ao-CD.

Reduced cortical gray matter volume in male adolescents with substance and conduct problems.

Brain structure abnormalities in early-onset and adolescent-onset conduct disorder.

It is demonstrated that gray matter volume reductions in brain regions involved in processing socioemotional stimuli are associated with conduct disorder, regardless of age of onset.

Altered spontaneous brain activity in adolescent boys with pure conduct disorder revealed by regional homogeneity analysis

The results suggest that CD is associated with abnormal intrinsic brain activity, mainly in the cerebellum and temporal–parietal-limbic cortices, regions that are related to emotional and cognitive processing.

Describing the Brain in Autism in Five Dimensions—Magnetic Resonance Imaging-Assisted Diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder Using a Multiparameter Classification Approach

It is demonstrated how a multiparameter classification approach can be used to characterize the complex and subtle structural pattern of gray matter anatomy implicated in adults with ASD, and to reveal spatially distributed patterns of discriminating regions for a variety of parameters describing brain anatomy.
