2017 NeuroImage  
These findings comply with previous findings in newborns and a recent study on fetuses.  ...  The application of DWI to map early development of the human connectome in-utero, however, is challenged by intermittent fetal and maternal motion that disrupts the spatial correspondence of data acquired  ...  in Penn Image Computing and Science Laboratory (PICSL) 3 at the University of Pennsylvania.  ...

Brain asymmetry in the white matter making and globularity

Constantina Theofanopoulou
2015 Frontiers in Psychology  
The size, myelination and fiber caliber of the Corpus Callosum present an anterior-to-posterior increase, in a way that inter-hemispheric connectivity is more prominent in the sensory motor areas, whereas  ...  , but in light of developmental changes that gave rise to a more globular braincase configuration after the split from Neanderthals-Denisovans.  ...  that the fiber organization of the Corpus Callosum has nothing in common with the callosal organization reported in monkeys, where the density of callosal connections varies according to body part within  ...

Neurodevelopmental Abnormalities and Congenital Heart Disease

Paul D. Morton, Nobuyuki Ishibashi, Richard A. Jonas
2017 Circulation Research  
In the past 2 decades, it has become evident that individuals born with congenital heart disease (CHD) are at risk of developing life-long neurological deficits.  ...  In this review, we describe key time windows of development during which the immature brain is vulnerable to injury.  ...  Microcephaly, immature cortical mantle, agenesis of the corpus callous, and holoprosencephaly were amongst the identified developmental abnormalities 18 .  ...

Is fetal MRI ready for neuroimaging prime time? An examination of progress and remaining areas for development

Vidya Rajagopalan, Sean Deoni, Ashok Panigrahy, Moriah E. Thomason
2021 Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience  
We will conclude with articulation of the benefits of overcoming these challenges and would lend to the primary questions articulated in the HBCD initiative.  ...  In the development of a common Healthy Brain and Child Development (HBCD) protocol, one of the chief questions is "is fetal MRI ready for prime-time?"  ...  VR is supported by National Institutes of Health K01HL153942, Additional Ventures Foundation, and The Saban Research Institute.  ...

2016 Neuroradiology  
Purpose: We studied differences in diffusion tensor imaging metrics (DTI-metrics) of white matter structural integrity among cohorts of subjects with multiple sclerosis (MS) classified according to progression  ...  The best ANCOVA model to explain SRT-LTS scores among groups (p=0.002) included right acoustic radiation AD (p=0.001), corpus callosum AD (p=0.004) and RD (p=0.005), left corticospinal tract AD and RD  ...  Schizencephaly, cortical dysplasia, porencephalic cyst, agenesis of the corpus callosum were some of the findings.  ...

Relationship between large-scale structural and functional brain connectivity in the human lifespan [article]

In particular, a new area of research has been defined in these years, called 'connectomics': this is the study of the different kinds of 'connections' existing among micro-and macro-areas of the brain  ...  In collaboration with the Neuroradiology  ...  agenesis of the corpus callosum.  ...

Top ten discoveries of the year: Neurodevelopmental disorders

Mara Dierssen
Developmental brain disorders, a highly heterogeneous group of disorders with a prevalence of around 3% of worldwide population, represent a growing medical challenge.  ...  Several of these phenotypes can often co-exist in the same patient and characterize the same disorder.  ...  Using their model of cerebral tracts, the authors could recapitulate the agenesis of corpus callosum (Edwards et al., 2014) , by knocking down L1CAM gene (Demyanenko et al., 1999; Siegenthaler et al.  ...
