Child Brain Database

This is cool!
From Mind Hacks:
"A database of MRI scans of normally developing children has been launched that could revolutionalise the understanding of childhood brain function, injury and disease. It includes brain scans of 500 children from 7 days to 18 years-old and aims to be representative of the population at large...One difficulty with many current studies of brain development in children is there is no precise reference for what constitutes 'normal' development." [bolding done by me]
Here is a link to a summary and Powerpoint presentation from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.
