The Human Connectome Project (HCP) high resolution data represents the state of the art for diffusion imaging in human brain. 3D-SHORE is an analytical basis for diffusion MRI which is able to reconstruct the Ensemble Average Propagator (EAP) from multi-shell data for the characterization of the diffusion process in each voxel. In this work we calculated the analytical expressions for the recently introduced EAP-derived microstructural indices including RTOP, RTAP and RTPP for 3D-SHORE model. The use of the HCP data in combination with these biomarkers provides an estimation of microstructural changes between the different brain tissues.
