Neurodevelopmental MRI Database

This is a database of average MRIs and associated MRI volumes for developmental MRI work. It consists of average MRI templates, segmented partial volume estimate volumes for GM, WM, T2W-derived CSF. The database is separated into head-based and brain-based averages. The data are separated by ages in months, years, 6-month, or 5-year intervals. The templates are grouped into first year (2 weeks through 12 months), early childhood (15 months through 4 years), childhood (4 years through 10 years), adolescence (10.5 years through 17.5 years) and adults (18 years through 89 years).

Tools for cortical source analysis of EEG and ERP are provided. These tools are based on the average MRI templates, segmenting, and atlases.

These should not be modified or used in commercial applications. Publications from this work should cite the publications for the data upon which these templates are based.

There are two recent publications that summarize much of the work: Richards, J.E., & Xie, W. (2015). Brains for all the ages: Structural neurodevelopment in infants and children from a life-span perspective. In J. Bensen (Ed.), Advances in Child Development and Behavior (Vol 48, Chapter 1, pps 1-52; Richards, J.E., Sanchez, C., Phillips-Meek, M., & Xie, W. (2015). A database of age-appropriate average MRI templates. Neuroimage,doi:10.1016/j.neuroimage.2015.04.055.

The database consists of MRI average templates for a number of ages; in 1-3 month increments through 18 months; then half-year increments through 19-5 years; then 5 year increments through 89 years. The templates were done separately for brain and head. Also included are segmentation PVE volumes for gm/wm/csf; T2W-derived CSF; and non-myelinated axons (NMA) for infants. Access to the dataset is separated by ages (infants; 0-12 mo; preschool, 15 mo through 4-0 years; children 4-5 through 10-5 yrs; adolescents 11-0 through 17-5 yrs; adults 20-89 years).

The segment data for ages 15-months and older consists of GM, WM, CSF, and T2W-derived CSF. The best combination of segments would be the image_aposteriori_seg data, using GM, WM, and T2W-derived CSF for priors. For 3 through 12 months, the best combination of segments would be the nma_seg data; using GM, WM, NMA, and T2W-derived CSF. The “CSF” PVE segments are “Other Matter” in a 3-class segmentation (GM, WM, “Other Matter”) and does not reflect actual CSF. The T2W-derived CSF is identified as bright voxels in the T2W scan and represent actual CSF in the brain or head. There is an atlas derived from FSL “Harvard-Oxford” cortical and subcortical atlas for the infants, 8 10 12 14 16 18, and 20-24 year old templates.

The ingredients for cortical source analysis of EEG and ERP are electrical scalp potential recordings, electrode locations, source dipole locations, and a head model. The intent of source analysis is to determine the location and strength of current dipoles located in th head that generate current on the scalp. The source dipole locations tell where the dipoles occur; and can be located in a spherical shell, on the surface of the brain, in gray matter, or in selected regions of interest.  The forward model specifies how a dipole(s) at location D with amplitude vector AM passes a current to each electrode on the scalp. The locations of the electrodes for the electrical scalp potential recordings must be known. 

Four types of files are available on this site.  These files correspond to the average templates located elsewhere on the site.   1) electrode maps for 10-10 (81 electrodes) system, Geodesic Sensor Net (128 channels), and Hydrocel GSN (128 channel). These are placement locations in AC-reference origin to the average head templates;  2) source volumes for GM (sans NMA) and eyes.  These are given as MRI volumes and as EMSE 3fr wireframe files; source volumes also may be derived from the BEM models, or from atlases; 3) segmented heads for boundary element models (BEM);  three-compartment (scalp, outer skull, inner skull); four compartment (scalp, outer skull, inner skull (CSF), brain;  five compartment (scalp, outer skull, inner skull (CSF and other), GM, WM.  These are given as MRI volumes, EMSE 3fr wireframe files (four compartment), CURRY “Sn” and “Bn” files; 4) segmented heads for finite element models (FEM).   These are given as MRI volumes and EMSE 3fr wireframe files.

Some work in EMSE or CURRY will be needed or source analysis; e.g., the “forward models” in EMSE may be calculated for a FEM model with electrodes, source volume wireframe, and FEM wireframe. However, the choice of electrodes, locations of sources, and type of model need to be designed by the user.

File Structure:   Age (infant, early child, adolescent, adult) folders contain subfolders: Electrodes (AC-electrodes); BEM (boundary element model MRI volumes); FEM (segmented finite element model MRI volumes); EMSE (wireframes, elp, head and brain MRI volumes); CURRY (electrodes with fiducials, Sn and Bn model files)

Contact John E. Richards (http:\\jerlab.psych.sc.edu, richards-john@sc.edu) for access to the volumes

June 2019.  We finished a new version of the database.  The new version, 1) increased the number of 3.0T MRIs at each age that make up the averages; 2) modified some of the MRI volumes to work more seamlessly in SPM, FreeSurfer, FSL, and 3) increase the number of averages with 3T MRIs.

1) Increased the number of MRIs at each age. We accessed several new open-access MRI sites. These include sites with young infants (e.g., IBIS), young children through adolescents (PING, CMIHBN, ABIDE, ABCD). These MRIs will be used to form new MRI averages with a minumum of about 25 participants at each age. Some of the infant ages will have more than 60 MRIs for each average.

2) Modified some of the MRI volumes. Some of the original volumes disregarded the header information or voxel orientation. This created extra steps in some programs (e.g., SPM). The header and other information will be modified to conform to accepted MRI volume standards.

3) With the addition of additional MRIs, the database will have more coverage of 3T MRI averages. We will have 3T-based averages for 3.0-Years and 4-0 through 20-24Years in 6 month increments.   

All the former 1.5T averages for infants, preschool, children, and adolescents, or combined 1.5T/3.0T averages are now “Version 1” and Version 2 consists of only averages from 3.0T volumes.  The Version 1 templates are in a subfolder for each age group, whereas the main folders of the age groups are based on 3T averages.

We are in the process of moving the database to the NITRC site.
