Recent advances in fMRI research highlight the use of multivariate methods for examining whole-brain connectivity. Complementary data-driven methods are needed for determining the subset of predictors related to individual differences. Although commonly used for this purpose, ordinary least squares (OLS) regression may not be ideal due to multi-collinearity and over-fitting issues. Penalized regression is a promising and underutilized alternative to OLS regression. In this paper, we propose a nonparametric bootstrap quantile (QNT) approach for variable selection with neuroimaging data. We use real and simulated data, as well as annotated R code, to demonstrate the benefits of our proposed method. Our results illustrate the practical potential of our proposed bootstrap QNT approach. Our real data example demonstrates how our method can be used to relate individual differences in neural network connectivity with an externalizing personality measure. Also, our simulation results reveal that the QNT method

The purpose of neuroimaging meta-analysis is to localize the brain regions that are activated consistently in response to a certain intervention. As a commonly used technique, current coordinate-based meta-analyses (CBMA) of neuroimaging studies utilize relatively sparse information from published studies, typically only using (x,y,z) coordinates of the activation peaks. Such CBMA methods have several limitations. First, there is no way to jointly incorporate deactivation information when available, which has been shown to result in an inaccurate statistic image when assessing a difference contrast. Second, the scale of a kernel reflecting spatial uncertainty must be set without taking the effect size (e.g., Z-stat) into account. To address these problems, we employ Gaussian-process regression (GPR), explicitly estimating the unobserved statistic image given the sparse peak activation coordinate and standardized effect-size estimate data. In particular, our model allows estimation of effect size at

In the last decade, combined transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS)-neuroimaging studies have greatly stimulated research in the field of TMS and neuroimaging. Here, we review how TMS can be combined with various neuroimaging techniques to investigate human brain function. When applied during neuroimaging (online approach), TMS can be used to test how focal cortex stimulation acutely modifies the activity and connectivity in the stimulated neuronal circuits. TMS and neuroimaging can also be separated in time (offline approach). A conditioning session of repetitive TMS (rTMS) may be used to induce rapid reorganization in functional brain networks. The temporospatial patterns of TMS-induced reorganization can be subsequently mapped by using neuroimaging methods. Alternatively, neuroimaging may be performed first to localize brain areas that are involved in a given task. The temporospatial information obtained by neuroimaging can be used to define the optimal site and time point of stimulation in a
This essential resource on neuroimaging provides an accessible and user-friendly introduction to the field written by leading researchers. The book describes theoretical and methodological developments in the use of functional neuroimaging techniques to study the neural basis of cognition, from early scientific efforts to link brain and behavior to the latest applications of fMRI and PET methods.

By introducing a technique within the description of a domain, the book offers a clear explanation of the process while highlighting its biological context. The emphasis on readability makes Handbook of Functional Neuroimaging of Cognition ideal for classroom use in advanced undergraduate and graduate courses in cognitive neuroscience ...
Results The cerebellar hemispheres were enlarged in 18% of the patients, mimicking macrocerebellum. The posterior fossa was enlarged in 42% of the patients, resembling Dandy-Walker malformation. Abnormalities of the brainstem, such as protuberance at the ventral contour of the midbrain, were present in 66% of the patients. Abnormalities of the supratentorial brain were present in approximately one-third of the patients, most commonly malrotation of the hippocampi. Mild ventriculomegaly, which typically did not require shunting, was present in 23% of the patients. No correlation between neuroimaging findings and molecular genetic cause was apparent. A novel predictor of outcome was identified; the more severe the degree of vermis hypoplasia, the worse the neurodevelopmental outcome was. ...
Neuroimaging is a medical discipline that uses non-invasive methods of visualizing the brain. In addition to being used to diagnose disease and assess brain health, neuroimaging is also valuable in the study of the brain, how the brain works, and how various activities impact the brain.. Feinstein Institute researchers are involved in a leading imaging research program in brain disease that is internationally recognized for developing novel imaging techniques to characterize and quantify brain patterns in neurodegenerative disorders. These include Parkinsons disease, Huntingtons disease, dystonia and other neurological conditions. They use their findings for diagnosing disease and for assessing the extent of functional impairment as the disease progresses. Researchers are also investigating the regulation of key molecules to understand how brain chemistry relates to specific brain patterns and therapeutic outcome.. Feinstein Institute investigators conducting neuroimaging research include ...

Perhaps the most important achievements in the field of epileptology in the past two decades have been in the neuroimaging and genetic breakthroughs as applied to patients with epilepsy. Indeed, neuroimaging has become a vital part in the study of epilepsy, affecting broad aspects of the disorder ranging from diagnosis and classification to treatment and prognosis.
In 2006 we were awarded a grant under RFA DA-06-011 to create at UCLA a novel and significant new comprehensive NeuroImaging Training Program (the NITP) at the Pre-Doctoral level and an annual short course directed to post-graduates and pre-doctoral trainees. The mission of the NITP is to train a new generation of neuroscientists and clinical researchers who are experts in neuroimaging, and who can apply these many faceted tools intelligently, creatively and critically to address pressing problems in health care and basic sciences. Achieving a systems-level view of the brain is an elusive and challenging goal as there is a great leap needed to bridge the gap between cellular signaling, or computation by local circuits, to the behavior and mental activity of vertebrate animals. Systems neuroscience has seen a dramatic rebirth with the advent of practical approaches to non-invasive in vivo imaging that express the functional status of the nervous system, and that serve to link these seemingly ...

Despite major advances in the understanding of brain abnormalities associated with mental disorders in the past two decades, the long term outcome of the major disorders remains only marginally better than a century ago.. One problem is that most abnormalities can only be demonstrated convincingly in groups rather than individuals. However a growing body of evidence from our own studies and from others demonstrates that combining information from several sources does provide clinically useful information in individual cases.. The time is ripe for demonstrating application of neuroscientific advances in routine clinical practice.. ...

Nothing pleases B&T more on a Friday than running a story about a journo gaffe, so you can imagine our excitement when we stumbled upon this pearler.. Eric Young, a veteran news anchor for Prime News in New Zealand, managed not one but two cock-ups during a recent 5:30pm bulletin.. The first one was not so much his fault as it was the producers, signing off early and skipping the weather segment (which generally comes last in a news bulletin) altogether.. Young remained impressively poised following his sign-off, but soon found himself in a discussion with one of the technical crew members, where he questioned the absence of the weather, and even dropped an expletive - all while the camera was still rolling.. ...

Within the past few decades, advances in imaging acquisition have given rise to a large number of in vivo techniques for brain mapping. This wide range of structural and functional imaging modalities provides a major source of information-rich data which may be used to non-invasively understand the human brain, and is a promising source of information for improved clinical diagnosis and treatment decision-making. Due to the complex spatial structure of neuroimaging data as well as the small number of samples typically collected in neuroimaging experiments, statistical methods which try to integrate different types of neuroimaging data are paramount. Our research is focused on the development of methods which allow for incorporation of prior information from multimodal neuroimaging sources to improve the reliability of inference in the presence of small to moderate sample sizes. First, we propose an integrative predictive modeling framework for neuroimaging data with spatial structure, such as ...
The Alzheimers Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) began in October 2004 as a landmark study with a public-private partnership that gathered and analyzed thousands of brain scans, genetic profiles and biomarkers in blood and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Although the original goal was to define biomarkers for use in clinical trials to determine the best way to measure treatment effects of Alzheimers disease (AD), the goal has been expanded to using biomarkers to identify AD at a pre-dementia stage. ADNI1 involves scientists at 59 research centers, 54 in the U.S. and five in Canada. Originally 800 participants were enrolled. This group was comprised of 200 participants with AD, 400 with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and 200 with normal cognition. In ADNI-GO, an estimated 200 participants with early amnestic MCI (EMCI) were enrolled to understand and characterize the mildest symptomatic phase of AD. An additional 650 participants will be enrolled under ADNI2.. Some of the leading-edge ...

By Henry T. Greely, Edelman Johnson Professor of Law, Stanford Law School; Professor (by courtesy) of Genetics, Stanford Medical School; Director, Program in Neuroscience & Society, Stanford University. The recent meeting at Harvard on neuroimaging, pain, and the law demonstrated powerfully that the offering of neuroimaging as evidence of pain, in court and in administrative hearings, is growing closer. The science for identifying a likely pattern of neuroimaging results strongly associated with the subjective sensation of pain keeps improving. Two companies (and here) recently were founded to provide electro-encephalography (EEG) evidence of the existence of pain. And at least one neuroscientist has been providing expert testimony that a particular neuroimaging signal detected using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is useful evidence of the existence of pain, as discussed recently in Nature.. If nothing more is done, neuroimaging evidence of pain will be offered, accepted, rejected, ...

Imaging genomics has increasingly moved towards a GWAS approach, using large-scale collaborations to improve power for the detection of variants with small independent effects [29]. Examples of such consortia include the Enhancing Neuro-imaging through Meta-analysis (ENIGMA) consortium [37], Cohorts for Heart and Aging Research in Genomic Epidemiology (CHARGE) consortium [36], Alzheimers Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI), IMAGEN, which is focused on adolescents [38], and the Uniform Neuro-Imaging of Virchow-Robin Spaces Enlargement (UNIVRSE) consortium [39]. The growing number of GWAS of brain phenotypes and of neuropsychiatric disorders has, on occasion, lent support to previously reported candidate variants [40], but importantly has identified many new variants of interest [41].. An early study by the ENIGMA consortium consisted of approximately 8000 participants, including healthy controls and cases with psychiatric disorders [42]. This study identified significant associations between ...

Down Alzheimer Barcelona Neuroimaging Initiative (DABNI): A research effort to understand Alzheimers disease in Down syndrome (en)
ABSTRACT: While the human medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) is widely believed to be a key node of neural networks relevant for socio-emotional processing, its functional subspecialization is still poorly understood. We thus revisited the often assumed differentiation of the mPFC in social cognition along its ventral-dorsal axis. Our neuroinformatic analysis was based on a neuroimaging meta-analysis of perspective-taking that yielded two separate clusters in the ventral and dorsal mPFC, respectively. We determined each seed regions brain-wide interaction pattern by two complementary measures of functional connectivity: co-activation across a wide range of neuroimaging studies archived in the BrainMap database and correlated signal fluctuations during unconstrained ("resting") cognition. Furthermore, we characterized the functions associated with these two regions using the BrainMap database. Across methods, the ventral mPFC was more strongly connected with the nucleus accumbens, hippocampus, ...
