Chinese Color Nest Project

This is a twenty-year project, and its long-term goal is to create neurobiologically sound developmental curves for the brain to characterize phenomenological changes associated with the onset of varying forms of mental health and learning disorders, as well as to predict the developmental status (i.e., age-expected values) of an individual brain’s structure or function. Beyond…

Time, Space and Brain … The Brain is wider than the Sky. Emily Dickinson Every time we remember something from the past or imagine something that will happen in the future, we engage in mental time travel. Scientists discovered that, whether we mentally travel back into the past or forward into the future, some of…

Software DREAM Comes True

Rhythms of the brain are generated by neural oscillations across multiple frequencies. These oscillations can be decomposed into distinct frequency intervals associated with specific physiological processes. In practice, the number and ranges of decodable frequency intervals are determined by sampling parameters, often ignored by researchers. To improve the situation, we report on an open toolbox…

Crisis & Opportunity in Developmental Neuroscience

I posted the modified PDF version of the presentation by Professor F. Xavier Castellanos from New York University. He talked about this ‘Crisis and Opportunity’ story during the Brain Mind Development in Childhood and Adolescence Forum of the Inaugural Beijing Brain Conference (26 October 2020). Open science shares with the community, for reproducibility!

Brain Development | Growth Charts

Growth is a result of your child’s genetics, environment, and culture. When your children come to a well-child check, their pediatrician will measure their height and weight at each visit and head circumference when they are 3 years and younger. Not only can it be fun to see how much they have grown between visits,…

Open Resources for MRI Human Brain in China

Comparable to ‘Project Apollo’ and ‘Manhattan Project’ in last century, brain projects became a national-wide arena for scientific frontiers at the beginning of the 21st century. Of note, the most recent decade paralleled the remarkable development of the non-invasive and in-vivo human brain imaging technologies. Especially, the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have made significant progresses…
