  2. A meta-analysis of white matter changes, based on TBSS and the ENIGMA template and atlas
  3. A shape meta-analysis of deep gray matter structures: ENIGMA-Shape
  4. Multi-site voxel-based meta-analysis.ENIGMA-PD is presently comprised 15 cohorts in Europe, Russia, North and South America. If you are interested in joining ENIGMA-PD, please contact Boris Gutman at bgutman@usc.edu.
