Joint cortical parcellation maps of human and macaque infant brains with corresponding regions are highly desirable, since they provide basic common cortical parcels for both region-based and network-based studies of two closely-related species. Developmental patterns of infants indicate underlying rapid changes of microstructures, which determine the molecular and functional principles of the cortex. Leveraging 210 longitudinal human infant MRI scans and 140 longitudinal macaque infant MRI scans, we develop a novel method to generate the first joint parcellation maps of human and macaque infants based on their developmental patterns.
