Description

One of the most critical developments in human neuroimaging research has been the creation of standard atlas templates for between participant registration and normalization. These atlases enable alignment of individual scans to improve localization and statistical power of the results, and allow comparison of results between studies and institutions. Presently, however, rhesus macaque (Macaca mulatta) imaging studies have been limited in their generalization by a lack of a common atlas composed from multiple individuals. Through a joint collaboration between the National Institute on Aging, Oregon Health and Science University and University of Wisconsin – Madison, we have constructed a new set of multi-subject atlas templates in order to facilitate functional and structural imaging studies of the rhesus macaque. A full description of the atlas templates and the creation process can be found in the technical report and in NeuroImage (2009).
