Recent News

  • September, 2022. New manuscript online! Our paper “High-resolution atlasing and segmentation of the subcortex: review and perspective on challenges and opportunities created by machine learning” has been accepted in Neuroimage (Special Issue: Terra incognita: diving into the human subcortex). We review the literature on subcortical atlases and segmentation methods and discuss challenges and opportunities of using machine learning for in vivo segmentation of MRI. Hope you enjoy!
