Advantages and limitations
Wednesday October 09, 2002
  Possible advantage of integrating ROI and linear or non-linear transformation of the brain
Case study - Pathology associated with different shapes:
characterization with voxel based morphometry?
A case study: how it is processed, how it is analyzed.
