Child Mind Institute Researcher and Colleagues Unveil Mindboggle, a first-of-its-kind tool for Studying Brain Shape and Structure and their Relation to Mental Health Disorders

February 23, 2017

Child Mind Institute researchers have developed Mindboggle, a powerful, new tool for studying the detailed shape of brain structures that will help open the door to the potential discovery of brain-based biomarkers to aid in the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness. In a new study published today in PLoS Computational Biology, the Child Mind Institute’s Dr. Arno Klein and colleagues present data from their evaluation and testing of Mindboggle, using the most extensive and precisely labeled set of publicly available brain images in the world. Their proof-of-concept results reveal measurable brain-based differences correlated with the presence of Alzheimer’s, suggesting the possibility of morphometry-based clinical evaluations of risk for that and other brain-based diseases, including psychiatric disorders. The study is the largest shape analysis of human brains ever conducted.
