DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00086

[…] filtering (0.01–0.1) in order to isolate the low-frequency bold fluctuations of interest. structural images were registered to a common stereotaxic space (montreal neurological institute, mni) using advanced normalization tools (avants et al., ). functional image registration was completed using boundary based registration as implemented in fsl (greve and fischl, ). single participant nuisance […]

[…] none of the patients showed head motion (translation and rotation about each of the axes) greater than 3 mm during the experiment., functional connectivity mri data were normalized using advanced normalization tools v2.1.0 rc3 [ants ()], following a multistep approach in which we (1) preprocessed the t1-weighted image, (2) calculated the warp parameters from the t1-weighted image […]

[…] appropriate transform and averaged to create a population atlas representing the average anatomy of the study sample. all registrations were performed with a combination of mni_autoreg tools [] and advanced normalization tools (ants) [, ]. the result of the registration is to have all the scans deformed into alignment with each other in an unbiased fashion. this allows for the analysis […]

[…] from which anatomical rois were derived was non-linearly aligned to the group-wise template. the registration included elastic warping with a point-set based registration metric implemented in the advanced normalization tools (ants) software library. for use in the subsequent statistical analysis, mean values of the diffusion-tensor-derived indices, namely, fractional anisotropy (fa), rd […]
