We developed a brain atlas of young children on the basis of MR images from 96 children aged from 6-8 yrs old and used it for spatial normalization of PET images. The spatial normalization results showed that a pediatric brain atlas is more appropriate for pediatric neuroimaging research than the adult brain atlas.
