In this article, we present some advances on medical imaging and computing at the National Laboratory of Pattern Recognition
(NLPR) in the Chinese Academy of Sciences. The first part is computational neuroanatomy. Several novel methods on segmentations
of brain tissue and anatomical substructures, brain image registration, and shape analysis are presented. The second part
consists of brain connectivity, which includes anatomical connectivity based on diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), functional
and effective connectivity with functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). It focuses on abnormal patterns of brain connectivity
of patients with various brain disorders compared with matched normal controls. Finally, some prospects and future research
directions in this field are also given.
