Importing atlases

Introduction:

This website links to some external atlases and describes possible approaches how to import these in BrainVoyager.

Which regions are available in the atlas? Distinguish: is it also subcortical?

How are the regions defined? Functionally or anatomically?

General approach about MNI to TAL.

A good general resource is http://imaging.mrc-cbu.cam.ac.uk/imaging/MniTalairach.

 

External: GingerALE (load finished VOIs in MNI space > convert foci (VOIs) > text file; >> there is document from Armin. Brainmap.org (download coords in Text, and download Matlab script mni2tal.m.)

Internal: >>

 >> Issues: high resolution data, bounding boxes

 

One approach in BrainVoyager is the copy labels approach.

 

Standard regions are very important for scientific research, >> (essay Armin)

1. AAL: simple Matlab script (for Windows/Mac) to import the AAL.nii available on request

-> need solution for nr of labels / get import VOI working for NIfTI converter

2. BALSA Glasser: https://balsa.wustl.edu/WN56

3. Benson (2012, 2014):

4. Probabilistic Maps of Visual Topography in Human Cortex by Kastner (Princeton): https://scholar.princeton.edu/napl/resources
