How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Controlled laboratory stress induction procedures are very effective in inducing physiological and subjective stress. However, whether such stress responses are representative for stress reactivity in real life is not clear. Using a combined within-subject functional MRI laboratory stress and ecological momentary assessment stress paradigm, we inve...
Physiological noise has been shown to have a large impact on the quality of functional MRI data, especially in areas close to fluid-filled cavities and arteries, such as the brainstem. Commonly, physiological recordings during scanning are transformed with methods such as RETROICOR and used as nuisance regressors in general linear models to remove...

Emerging efforts toward prevention of stress-related mental disorders have created a need for unobtrusive real-life monitoring of stress-related symptoms. We used ecological momentary assessments (EMA) combined with wearable biosensors to investigate whether these can be used to detect periods of prolonged stress. During stressful high-stake exam (...
Objective: This pilot study aims to identify white matter (WM) tract abnormalities in Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) toddlers and pre-schoolers by Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), and to correlate imaging findings with clinical improvement after early interventional and Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapies by Verbal Behavior Milestones Assessm...
The anatomical structure of the thalamus renders its segmentation on 3DT1 images harder due to its low tissue contrast, and not well-defined boundaries. We aimed to investigate the differences in the precision of publicly available segmentation techniques on 3DT1 images acquired at 1.5 T and 3 T machines compared to the thalamic manual segmentation...
Background: Diagnoses of thalamic atrophy in children are based on experts’ judgments. No normative measures exist for aiding objective diagnoses. Our aim was to determine normative two-dimensions(2D) and volume measurements of the thalamus in normally developing children. Methods: MRI images of 245 patients were retrospectively collected. Only par...
Background and purpose: Few articles in the literature have looked at the diameter of the optic nerve on MR imaging, especially in children, in whom observations are subjective and no normative data exist. The aim of this study was to establish a data base for optic nerve diameter measurements on MR imaging in the pediatric population. Materials...
