This project continues the research started in Virtual NeuroLab.
In this project we will establish a standardized pipeline for the creation of surface-based brain atlases from a population of individual brains. The pipeline roughly comprises the following steps: imaging, segmentation, surface reconstruction, and averaging. The emphasis is on methods for creation, management, and visualisation of brain atlases. The tools developed in recent years will be generalized and adapted in particular for hierarchical atlases. This will also include a concept for integration of functional data. The methods will be applied in close cooperation with the participating research groups.
