EMPIRICAL MODELS FOR LONGITUDINAL POST-NATAL GROWTH

Longitudinal growth measures and associations with brain development

To describe variability in longitudinal growth trajectorires using semi-parametric models and relate the growth trajectories to brain myelination and IQ.

AGE RANGE

0-1 year

OUTCOMES

Separate models for length, weight, and head circumference; myelinated white matter; IQ.

Predictors (other than time)

For myelinated white matter, functional predictions of length, weight, and head circumference.

Do we have a tool for visualizing model output/predictions? If not, do we plan to?

No (but plotting functions are part of the R package); no

Status

Completed.

On-going work

None.

Documentation / Code / Slides / Tools

R package is avaialble on CRAN (and development version on GitHub). Manuscripts were in progress before Pantelis left the project. Need to follow-up with Hans.
