About this book


This volume presents the latest methods and approaches used to better characterize the properties of the structural human brain, and also explores various dysfunctional and non-dysfunctional neuroanatomical variations. This book is divided into 3 parts: methods, non-clinical applications, and clinical applications. The chapters in Part 1 talk about methods to study cortical thickness and the general linear model. Part 2 covers changes in brain structure from birth to adulthood, and morphometry of the corpus callosum. Part 3 discusses applications to study Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, epilepsy, Schizophrenia, and suicide. In Neuromethods series style, chapters include the kind of detail and key advice from the specialists needed to get successful results in your laboratory.

Cutting-edge and comprehensive, Brain Morphometry is a valuable resource for students, clinicians, and researchers who are interested in this developing field.
