    Brainvoyager Mesh time course (*.mtc) ↔ GIFTI time series (*.time.gii)
    Brainvoyager Statistical output map (*.smp) ↔ GIFTI functional output (*.func.gii)
    BrainVoyager surface file (*.srf)  ↔ GIFTI surface file (*.surf.gii)
  • BrainVoyager mesh time course (*.mtc) ↔ GIFTI time series (*.time.gii)
  • BrainVoyager statistical output map (*.smp) ↔ GIFTI functional output (*.func.gii)
  • BrainVoyager surface file (*.srf) colors ↔ GIFTI Color Label Table (*.label.gii) (v1.3)
