Direct applying adult or even pediatric atlases may compromise accuracy in analyzing infant brain images. In this abstract, we introduce a set of brain atlases which are dedicated for neonates, 1-year-olds, and 2-year-olds. Each atlas comprises a set of 3D images made up of the intensity model, tissue probability maps, and anatomical parcellation map. These components are constructed with the help of state-of-the-art infant MR segmentation and groupwise registration methods, applied on a set of infant images which are longitudinally acquired from 95 healthy infants. These atlases are publicly available on our website, http://bric.unc.edu/ideagroup/free-softwares/.
