The FieldTrip SimBio pipeline for EEG forward solutions

Biomed Eng Online
PMCID: 5870695
PMID: 29580236
DOI: 10.1186/s12938-018-0463-y

[…] f the skull on EEG forward solutions [, , , , ]. The open nature of the pipeline presented here allows its users to include more accurate skull segmentations from other toolboxes such as SPM, FSL, or BrainSuite. A comparison study including these toolboxes was conducted in [].The restrictions of the tetrahedral mesh generation necessitate a sufficient distance between the inner skull and outer bra […]


Broca’s Area as a Pre articulatory Phonetic Encoder: Gating the Motor Program

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5826965
PMID: 29520225
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2018.00064
call_split See protocol

[…] e of the patients, the following procedure was adopted. The MRI-T1 volume of each patient was used to perform the cortical surface extraction and the surface volume registration was computed with the Brainsuite () dedicated software. Data were then loaded into Brainstorm (MatLab Tool Box) () and the exact position of the coordinates was labeled onto the 3D patient’s MRI. Subsequently the 3D MRI an […]


Elavl3 is essential for the maintenance of Purkinje neuron axons

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5807307
PMID: 29426875
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-018-21130-5

[…] field of view (FOV): 23.0 mm × 15.4 mm, matrix: 192 × 128, phase encode segments: 16, slice thickness: 0.3 mm and total scan time: 144 sec. The volume of cerebella and whole brain was measured using BrainSuite and ITK-SNAP software. […]


Psychopathy Moderates the Relationship between Orbitofrontal and Striatal Alterations and Violence: The Investigation of Individuals Accused of Homicide

Front Hum Neurosci
PMCID: 5717542
PMID: 29249948
DOI: 10.3389/fnhum.2017.00579

[…] In terms of volumetric estimation, after the FreeSurfer processing and estimation, GMV of subcortical brain ROIs in the present study including caudate and putamen were further traced manually using BrainSuite (), which would correct small errors. Regarding the estimation of CTh, after normalization of the intensity, gray-white tissue segmentation was used as the starting point for a deformable s […]


Dynamics of Intersubject Brain Networks during Anxious Anticipation

[…] , ), AFNI (Cox, ;, ROBEX (Iglesias et al., ;, FSL (, SPM (, and Brainsuite (Shattuck and Leahy, ). We employed a “voting scheme” as follows: based on T1 data, a voxel was considered to be part of the brain if 4/6 packages estimated it to be a brain voxel; otherwis […]


Discrimination of emotional states from scalp and intracranial EEG using multiscale Rényi entropy

PLoS One
PMCID: 5669426
PMID: 29099846
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0186916

[…] d covering the occipital cortex. Then, we used the patient’s MRI scan before implantation to extract the cortex envelopes from the MRI scan (inner and outer skull, scalp surface and cortex) using the Brainsuite software[]. Fiducial points were selected manually. For the forward model, Boundary Element Model (BEM) surfaces were created using 15000 dipoles on the entire MRI volume so as to include d […]
