HCP Population-Based Tractography Atlases

image

The population-based tractography atlases were constructed using HCP-YA data. The first version was a population-averaged atlas (Yeh, 2018), whereas the more recent version was a population-based atlas (Yeh 2021) using DSI Studio’s automatic fiber tracking

HCP1065 atlas is an updated atlas from HCP842 atlas. The new atlas is baes on ”ICBM 2009a Nonlinear Asymmetric” (https://www.bic.mni.mcgill.ca/ServicesAtlases/ICBM152NLin2009) space, whereas HCP842 is based on FSL’s FA map ( 58 FA images averaged to old MNI152). The new atlas further provides subcomponents for cingulum, SLF, corticopontine track, corticostriatal track, corticothalamic track (renamed as thalamic radiation). Since the atlas is transformed or derived from HCP842, please cite the original HCP842 atlas paper (Yeh, 2018), and mentioned an updated version is used to get tracks in the ICBM152 nonlinear space.

To view these tract files, please download the HCP-1065 template fib file and open it in DSI Studio at [Step T3 Fiber Tracking]. The *.tt.gz files can be loaded using [Tracts][Open Tracts]. The ICBM152 images can be loaded using [Edit][Insert T1W/T2W].

HCP842 tractography atlas uses FSL’s FA map as its reference space (https://fsl.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl/fslwiki/Atlases), which averages from 58 FA images in the MNI152 coordinate.
