Project Title: 
Analysis of structural brain imaging data in pediatric samples – The impact of using adult vs. pediatric templates in data processing
Project Description: 
In my research project, I analyzed structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data from a large sample of children with a history of childhood maltreatment. This study addressed the issue of whether using an adult template for structural data processing in pediatric samples impacts estimates of brain volume.
