Resting-state fMRI Templates
Group ICA was used to generate spatial templates for 12 common resting-state networks in 62 typically-developing children, ages 9-15. We have made these available for those that will find them useful for masking and spatial template matching procedures. Basic demographic data on the sample is provided along with the protocol used to generate the templates.
Fetal ROI files
Spatially constrained parcellation (Craddock et al, 2012) was used to generate fetal ROI files (.nii.gz) containing either 100, 150 or 200 ROIs for a 32 week old fetus. We have made these available for those that will find them useful for extracting timecourse from fMRI data, or otherwise. Basic demographic data on the sample is provided along with relevant references.
