Repeated mild traumatic brain injury can cause acute neurologic impairment without overt structural damage in juvenile rats

PLoS One
PMCID: 5940222
PMID: 29738554
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0197187

[…] eneity in T2*-weighted images was corrected by estimating the bias field with N4 Bias Correction [] and template images generated for sham, single and repeated injury cohorts at each time point using Advanced Normalization Tools (ANTs,[]. The resulting template images were then combined using ANTs into a study-specific template [,] that was segmented into different t […]


Impulsivity in Parkinson’s Disease Is Associated With Alterations in Affective and Sensorimotor Striatal Networks

PMCID: 5932175
PMID: 29755401

[…] oftware.htm)]. None of the patients showed head motion (translation and rotation about each of the axes) greater than 3 mm during the experiment.Functional connectivity MRI data were normalized using Advanced Normalization Tools v2.1.0 rc3 [ANTs ()], following a multistep approach in which we (1) preprocessed the T1-weighted image, (2) calculated the warp parameters from the T1-weighted image to a […]


Analysis of neuroanatomical differences in mice with genetically modified serotonin transporters assessed by structural magnetic resonance imaging

Mol Autism
PMCID: 5894125
PMID: 29651330
DOI: 10.1186/s13229-018-0210-z

[…] e appropriate transform and averaged to create a population atlas representing the average anatomy of the study sample. All registrations were performed with a combination of mni_autoreg tools [] and advanced normalization tools (ANTs) [, ]. The result of the registration is to have all the scans deformed into alignment with each other in an unbiased fashion. This allows for the analysis of the de […]


A Statistically Representative Atlas for Mapping Neuronal Circuits in the Drosophila Adult Brain

Front Neuroinform
PMCID: 5876320
PMID: 29628885
DOI: 10.3389/fninf.2018.00013

[…] Group-wise intensity templates were constructed with the Advanced Normalization Tools (ANTs) software (Avants et al., ), using an algorithm building an average shaped brain that follows a two-step strategy. First, the intensity images of all brains used for […]


Amygdala–medial prefrontal cortex connectivity relates to stress and mental health in early childhood

PMCID: 5928403
PMID: 29522160
DOI: 10.1093/scan/nsy017

[…] sed framework for flexibly integrating neuroimaging analysis tools (). The software packages used in this preprocessing pipeline included FMRIB Software Library (FSL v5.0.8; ), FreeSurfer (v5.3.0; ), Advanced Normalization Tools (ANTs v2.1.0; ) and Nipype’s implementation of Artifact Detection Tools (ART; realignment and slice timing cor […]
