Template Brain (Image 1)

May 10, 2012
Template brain created for use in studies of anatomical brain differences related to aging and disease. The template brain was created in the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging at the University of California, Los Angles, where it is used for comparison with target brains from normal subjects to assist in the study of anatomical brain differences related to aging and disease. In this image (created by Art Toga, Paul Thompson and Colin Holmes), the brain surface is shown as color-coded spheres. Pink spheres represent areas of highest variability between the template and the target brain anatomy and blue spheres map lower variability. The probabilities of finding variability at any point are also encoded within the picture, giving the bubble-like appearance. This work was supported in part by National Science Foundation grant DBI 96-01356. [See related image Here.] Credit: Paul Thompson, Arthur Toga and Colin Holmes, UCLA
