Maturation and degeneration of the human brainstem across the adult lifespan

Representative plots of MWF, R1, and R2, and DTI indices values as a function of age. Note that, unlike FA, MWF, R1, R2, MD, RD, and AxD conform to nonlinear regional trends with age. For each ROI, the coefficient of determination, R2, and the significance of the linear regression model, p, are reported.
