bookmark AAL / Automated Anatomical Labeling Offers a reference frame for activation labeling. AAL is based on an anatomical parcellation of the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) single-subject brain. It makes the correspondence between the coordinates obtained from images normalized with the MNI average template as the target and the Talairach atlas brain. The tool uses the terminology for sulci to parcellate the inferior surface of the frontal lobe corresponding to the orbitofrontal cortex areas. The method aims to suppress the confusion existing in the literature regarding the relationship between a set of coordinates and its anatomical label.
