Fetal functional MRI brain masking using open data.
The use of fetal Resting-State Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (rs-fMRI) to characterise brain development before birth has emerged as a key new technique. Despite the fast and broad use of this method, we still lack neuroimaging processing pipelines capable of addressing the particular problems associated with this data source. Resting-State Functional Magnetic Resonance imaging (rs-fMRI) has emerged as a useful technique for investigating the evolution of the brain's network architecture. In recent years, this approach has been applied to the human brain in prenatal, providing access to a hitherto inaccessible functional development phase.Author(s): Shawn Kruger
