Ongoing Investigations

ADNI data is made available to researchers around the world. As such, there are many active research projects accessing and applying the shared ADNI data. To further encourage Alzheimer’s disease research collaboration, and to help prevent duplicate efforts, the list below shows the specific research focus of the active ADNI investigations. This information is requested annually as a requirement for data access.

Proposed Analysis: I'm developing a semi-automatic hippocampus delineation method which is based on a sparse delineation. To test my method I do a simulation study, including manual hippocampus segmentation which I downloaded from the harmonized hippocampal protocol website ( They provide hippocampus segmentation, but I would also like to have the corresponding MRI images noted in your database as "HarP 135 final release 2015". I need these MR images to complete the study and to perform automatic hippocampus segmentations such as FSL-FIRST and FreeSurfer for comparison.
