Abstract: Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) provides accurate anatomical brain images without the use of ionizing radiation, allowing longitudinal studies of brain morphometry during adolescent development. Results from an ongoing brain imaging project being conducted at the Child Psychiatry Branch of the National Institute of Mental Health indicate dynamic changes in brain anatomy throughout adolescence. White matter increases in a roughly linear pattern, with minor differences in slope in the… 
Heterogeneity in Subcortical Brain Development: A Structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study of Brain Maturation from 8 to 30 Years
TLDR
In addition to similarities in developmental trajectories within subcortical regions, the results point to differences between structures within the same regions: among the basal ganglia, the caudate showed a weaker relationship with age than the putamen and pallidum, and in the cerebellum, differences were found between GM and WM development.
Mapping subcortical brain maturation during adolescence: evidence of hemisphere- and sex-specific longitudinal changes.
TLDR
The results suggest that subcortical brain development from early to middle adolescence is characterized by striking hemispheric specialization and sexual dimorphisms, and provide a framework for interpreting normal and abnormal changes in cognition, affect and behavior.
The pediatric template of brain
TLDR
The Pediatric Template of Brain Perfusion is described and it is shown that global summary measurements capture the trajectories that demarcate critical turning points in brain maturation.

TLDR
The promise of computational analysis of structural MRI data is to understand how changes in cerebral morphology relate to acquisition and enhancement of skills and behaviors in typical and atypical development.
The pediatric template of brain perfusion
TLDR
The Pediatric Template of Brain Perfusion is described and it is shown that global summary measurements capture the trajectories that demarcate critical turning points in brain maturation.
Longitudinal characterization of white matter maturation during adolescence
Brain volumetric MRI study in healthy adolescent and young person’s using automated method
TLDR
The data indicate that quantitative structural Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) data of the adolescent brain is important in understanding the age-related human morphological changes.

A quantitative magnetic resonance imaging study of changes in brain morphology from infancy to late adulthood.
TLDR
These patterns of growth and change seen in vivo with MRI are largely consistent with neuropathological studies, as well as animal models of development, and may reflect neuronal progressive and regressive processes, including cell growth, myelination, cell death, and atrophy.
Age-related changes in the pediatric brain: quantitative MR evidence of maturational changes during adolescence.
TLDR
Whether a quantitative MR imaging method to map spin-lattice relaxation time (T1) can be used to characterize maturational changes in the normal human brain is determined and may be useful for assessing brain maturation in cases of developmental delay.
Quantitative brain magnetic resonance imaging in attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
TLDR
This first comprehensive morphometric analysis is consistent with hypothesized dysfunction of right-sided prefrontal-striatal systems in ADHD.
Quantitative Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Human Brain Development: Ages 4–18
TLDR
Findings highlight gender-specific maturational changes of the developing brain and the need for large gender-matched samples in pediatric neuropsychiatric studies.
Quantitative MRI of the temporal lobe, amygdala, and hippocampus in normal human development: Ages 4–18 years
TLDR
The volume of the temporal lobe, superior temporal gyrus, amygdala, and hippocampus was quantified from magnetic images of the brains of 99 healthy children and adolescents aged 4–18 years, consistent with previous preclinical and human studies that have indicated hormonal responsivity and extend quantitative morphologic findings from the adult literature.
Brain development during childhood and adolescence: a longitudinal MRI study
TLDR
This large-scale longitudinal pediatric neuroimaging study confirmed linear increases in white matter, but demonstrated nonlinear changes in cortical gray matter, with a preadolescent increase followed by a postadolescent decrease.

TLDR
The dynamic anatomical sequence of human cortical gray matter development between the age of 4-21 years using quantitative four-dimensional maps and time-lapse sequences reveals that higher-order association cortices mature only after lower-order somatosensory and visual cortices are developed.
Mapping sulcal pattern asymmetry and local cortical surface gray matter distribution in vivo: maturation in perisylvian cortices.
TLDR
Results from this cross-sectional study imply that asymmetries in the Sylvian fissure are dynamically changing into young adulthood and show that variability in brain tissue density is related to asymmetry in this region.
