[…] were corrected using an affine transformation of each diffusion-weighted image to the nondiffusion-weighted (b = 0) image as reference volume. the brain mask was estimated using the bet command of fmrib software library. thus, images of fa were generated for each subject by applying an fmrib58_fa template. individual fa images were registered to the fa template in the mni standard space.

[…] maturation on their term-equivalent age mri., dti data were transferred to an offline workstation for further image processing and analysis. we pre-processed all images using fsl 5.0 software of fmrib software library (analysis group, fmrib, oxford, uk) and dtistudio 3.0.2 of mri studio (johns hopkins university, baltimore, md). briefly, we converted raw dti dicom data into analyze format […]

[…] and (2) by defining overlap if the tumor spread across > 50% of all voxels within the aal hub area., preprocessing of the fmri data was performed using standard fsl procedures () included in melodic (), which included discarding the first 5 volumes, motion correction, spatial smoothing (6 mm full width at half maximum gaussian kernel), and high-pass filtering (100 s cut-off). following […]

[…] forming the y-axis, and a midline forming the z-axis. the x-axis ran left to right. skull stripping was performed using the automated brain extraction tool (bet; smith, ) provided as a part of the fmrib software library (fsl, http://fsl.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl/fslwiki/; smith et al., ). fractional intensity threshold was determined for all mri data., using the mricron software package (rorden et […]

[…] into nifti format during this step. the dcm2nii tool embedded in mricron accomplished this task., 2) estimating the brain mask: this step yielded the brain mask by using the bet command of fsl (fmrib software library v5.0) []. the brain mask was required for the subsequent processing steps. here, the b0 image without diffusion weighting was used for the estimation., 3) cropping the raw […]

[…] in the same way as described for sample s259. the only differences in analyses were found in their preprocessing. for example, the human connectome project utilizes a combination of the fsl tools topup and eddy in order to correct for eddy currents, head motion, and epi distortions simultaneously. these tools represent an updated version of the eddy_correct tool used for the s259 sample […]

[…] time (pre- vs. post-training), as well as the between-subject factor group (training vs. control)., a voxel-wise whole-volume fmri analysis of the ppi (, ) was performed for the transfer runs using feat. preprocessing steps consisted of those employed for the functional localizer (see above). modest spatial filtering with a fwhm = 5 mm was applied to allow for better registration () […]

[…] to report whether they used those strategies and how effective they felt each strategy was on a 5-point likert scale., bold fmri data for each subject were analyzed off-line using tools from the fmrib software library (http://www.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl). pre-processing of the images included, motion correction spatial smoothing using a gaussian kernel of 5-mm full width at half maximum (fwhm), […]

[…] of interests (roi) in each subject for a given roi atlas. the mean time series of each roi is obtained by averaging all the time series within a roi. to parcellate the brain, we use two data-driven atlases; power atlas () which is constructed of 264 non-neighboring cortical and sub-cortical rois and each rois has 81 voxels (is case of 2 mm isotropic volumes) and gordon atlas () […]

[…] brain parenchyma volumes were measured on t1w gradient echo images by using the cross-sectional version of the siena (structural image evaluation using normalization of atrophy) software, named sienax (part of fsl 4.0: http://www.fmrib.ox.ac.uk/fsl/), a previously described method to estimate global brain volume normalized for head size []. mri analysis allowed for normalized brain volume […]
