Paper Abstract

We studied the developmental trajectory of the putamen in 13-21 months old children using multivariate surface tensor-based morphometry. Our results indicate surface changes between 12 and 15 months’ age groups in the middle superior part the left putamen. The growth of the left putamen at earlier ages slows down after 15 months. The most important surface changes were detected in the right putamen between 18 and 21 months and were located in the anterior part of the structure. Our results demonstrate the heterochronic growth of the right and left putamen related to different functional subregions within putamen. Our results are compatible with previous studies devoted to total putamen volume changes during normal development.
