Lifespan Developing Human Connectome Project

Protocol Overview

Data Being Collected

Each participant mother is invited to have an antenatal MRI scan in her mid to late pregnancy. Once the baby has been delivered, a second MRI scan is conducted. This study is developing and using novel imaging methods for the acquisition of dMRI and rfMRI, overcoming the serious outstanding challenges in imaging the fetus and newborn by motion-tolerant image acquisition and analysis.

  • Standard HCP Demographic Data
  • Imaging: Structural imaging, structural connectivity data (diffusion MRI) and functional connectivity data (resting-state fMRI)
  • Clinical: Clinical, genetic and neurodevelopment data will be gathered after the birth of each subject
