Details of the Data

This dataset below includes high-quality and high-resolution in vivo diffusion MRI (all DTI-derived data, with imaging resolution 1.5x1.5x1.6mm3 before zero-padded reconstruction and average=2) and resting-state fMRI (with imaging resolution 2.4x2.4x3mm3 before zero-padded reconstruction) of baby brains.

DTI and T1 weighted image dimension: 256x256x60 (zero-padded); Resolution: 0.6563x0.6563x1.6 mm3
Rs-fMRI image dimension: 128x128x30 (zero-padded); Resolution: 1.3125x1.3125x3 mm3
