The human brain deteriorates as we age, and the rate and the trajectories of these changes significantly vary among brain regions and among individuals. Because neuroimaging data are potentially important indicators of individual's brain health, they are commonly used in brain age prediction. In this review, we summarize brain age prediction model from neuroimaging-based studies in the last ten years. The studies are categorized based on their image modalities and feature types. The results indicate that the prediction frameworks based on neuroimaging holds promise toward individualized brain age prediction. Finally, we addressed the challenges in brain age prediction and suggested some future research directions.
