An ongoing contracted study to develop a database of MRI and correlated clinical/behavioral data from ~ 500 healthy, typically
developing children, ages newborn to late adolescence/early adulthood. Imaging modalities include structural MRI, spectroscopy
and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI).
Will enable the study of normal brain development, provide a control database for studies of childhood psychiatric, developmental
and neurological disorders, and may lead to new imaging tools. Blueprint funds expanded the DTI portion of the project.
