Table 1 The data of whole brain volume, subdivision volume (telencephalon, cerebellum, brainstem, and LV), volume ratio of the telencephalon to the lateral ventricle (Tel/LV), and the DTI FA value from 5 to 20 days of incubation. The structure of cerebellum could not be discriminated until 9 days of incubation in our images
