By constructing a sampling distribution for DVARS we can create a standardized version of DVARS that should be more similar across scanners and datasets. 
Insight and inference for DVARS
This work describes a variance decomposition of the entire 4D dataset that shows DVARS to be just one of three sources of variation the authors refer to as D-var (closely linked to DVARS), S-var and E-var, and proposes a null sampling distribution for DVARS-squared and robust methods to estimate this null model, allowing computation of DVARS p-values.
A longitudinal neuroimaging dataset on arithmetic processing in school children
Function and structural data acquired using a 3T scanner in a sample of 132 typically developing children, who were scanned when they were approximately 11 years old, could be useful to answer questions regarding the neural bases of the development of math in children and its relation to individual differences in skill.
Mitigating head motion artifact in functional connectivity MRI
This protocol can be used to reduce motion-related variance to near zero in studies of functional connectivity, providing up to a 100-fold improvement over minimal-processing approaches in large datasets.
Evaluating fMRI-Based Estimation of Eye Gaze during Naturalistic Viewing
Confirmatory validation of the PEER method’s ability to infer eye gaze on a TR-by-TR basis during movie viewing is provided, using simultaneously acquired eye tracking data in five individuals.
Individualised MRI training for paediatric neuroimaging: A child-focused approach
Advancing motion denoising of multiband resting state functional connectivity fMRI data
It is shown that assumptions underlying common metrics for evaluating motion denoising pipelines, especially those based on quality control-functional connectivity (QC-FC) correlations and differences between high- and low-motion participants, are problematic, making these criteria inappropriate for quantifying pipeline performance.
Individualised MRI training for paediatric neuroimaging in autism spectrum disorders: A child-focused approach
An individualised MRI training procedure is reported that enables young children with ASD to better tolerate the MRI scanner environment based on a child-focused approach and an individualised familiarisation strategy to improve the quality of paediatric neuroimaging in similar clinical populations.
The Healthy Brain Network Serial Scanning Initiative: a resource for evaluating inter-individual differences and their reliabilities across scan conditions and sessions
This resource provides a test-bed for quantifying the reliability of connectivity indices across subjects, conditions and time and can be used to compare and optimize different frameworks for measuring connectivity and data collection parameters such as scan length.
Evaluation and Optimization of Motion Correction in Spinal Cord fMRI Preprocessing
The proposed motion correction algorithm that integrated 3D motion correction and 2D slicewise regularization along spinal cord curvature could improve subject-level processing outputs by reducing the effects of motions.
