Tool/Resource: IIT Human Brain Atlas (v.4.1)
 
New study by Cabeen, Bastin & Laidlaw, Neuroimage 2017 (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27847347) shows that the DTI template of the IIT Human Brain Atlas (v.4.1) has similar and in some cases superior performance compared to study-specific templates. This is in agreement with our 2013 paper (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23034880) and it has to do with the quality of our DTI template. The reason study-specific templates are thought to be superior to standardized templates is because the paper by van Hecke et al., Neuroimage 2011 (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21146617) used standardized templates of lower quality.

In addition, our standardized template offers the following advantages over study-specific templates:
a) Consistently high spatial normalization accuracy.
b) Minimizes complexity.
c) Facilitates integration of findings across studies.
d) Labels and other resources are available.
