R21 with Armin Schwartzman (Harvard University), Paul Thompson (UCLA) and also in collaboration with Helene Nadeau (Dawson College, Montreal, Canada), Anand Joshi (USC), Caroline Brun (University of Pennsylvania): Project abstract: Tensor-Based Morphometry (TBM) is an increasingly popular method for group analysis of brain MRI and DTI data. The main steps in the analysis consist of a nonlinear registration to align each individual scan to a common space, and a subsequent statistical analysis to determine morphometric.
