  author={Oytun Demirbilek and Islem Rekik},
Learning how to estimate a connectional brain template (CBT) from a population of brain multigraphs, where each graph (e.g., functional) quantifies a particular relationship between pairs of brain regions of interest (ROIs), allows to pin down the unique connectivity patterns shared across individuals. Specifically, a CBT is viewed as an integral representation of a set of highly heterogeneous graphs and ideally meeting the centeredness (i.e., minimum distance to all graphs in the population…

Estimation of connectional brain templates using selective multi-view network normalization
NetNorm produces the most centered and representative connectional brain template (CBT) that consistently captures the unique and distinctive traits of a population of multi-view brain networks, and identifies disordered brain connections by comparing templates estimated using disordered and healthy brains, respectively, demonstrating the discriminative power of the estimated CBTs.
Deep Graph Normalizer: A Geometric Deep Learning Approach for Estimating Connectional Brain Templates
Deep Graph Normalizer (DGN) is proposed, the first geometric deep learning (GDL) architecture for normalizing a population of MVBNs by integrating them into a single connectional brain template and significantly outperforms existing state-of-the-art methods on estimating CBTs on both small-scale and large-scale connectomic datasets.
Supervised Multi-topology Network Cross-diffusion for Population-driven Brain Network Atlas Estimation
