Model

Longitudinal growth measures and associations with brain development

  • Empirical Model

To describe variability in longitudinal growth trajectorires using semi-parametric models and relate the growth trajectories to brain myelination and iq.

OUTCOMES

Separate models for length, weight, and head circumference; myelinated white matter; IQ.

PREDICTORS (OTHER THAN TIME)

For myelinated white matter, functional predictions of length, weight, and head circumference.
