Downloads and loads multiscale functional brain parcellations
This atlas includes group brain parcellations generated from resting-state functional magnetic resonance images from about 200 young healthy subjects.
Multiple scales (number of networks) are available, among 7, 12, 20, 36, 64, 122, 197, 325, 444. The brain parcellations have been generated using a method called bootstrap analysis of stable clusters called as BASC, (Bellec et al., 2010) and the scales have been selected using a data-driven method called MSTEPS (Bellec, 2013).
Note that two versions of the template are available, ‘sym’ or ‘asym’. The ‘asym’ type contains brain images that have been registered in the asymmetric version of the MNI brain template (reflecting that the brain is asymmetric), while the ‘sym’ type contains images registered in the symmetric version of the MNI template. The symmetric template has been forced to be symmetric anatomically, and is therefore ideally suited to study homotopic functional connections in fMRI: finding homotopic regions simply consists of flipping the x-axis of the template.
