An anatomical template of human striate and extrastriate retinotopy

This page provides the templates described in this paper:

  • NC Benson, OH Butt, DH Brainard, GK Aguirre (2014) Correction of distortion in flattened representations of the cortical surface allows prediction of V1-V3 functional organization from anatomy. PLoS Comput. Biol. 10(3):e1003538. doi:10.1371/journal.pcbi.1003538

This page describes a template of the human brain that can be used to predict with known accuracy and precision the retinotopic organization of early visual cortical areas V1, V2, and V3 based upon the sulcal topology of the cortical surface.

The template is comprised of cortical surface representations in MGH/MGZ format suitable for use in FreeSurfer. This page provides links to download these files, access to the raw data used to construct the template, and additional information about the template not reported in the paper.

The template is free to use (with appropriate attribution) for academic or commercial purposes. The atlas may not be distributed for commercial gain.

For information on the use of the files available on this page for predicting the retinotopic organization of a subject, please see our V1 page, which describes the use of our previous V1 template, which is represented in the same format as our V1, V2, and V3 template.

Simulation Movie

Download

simulationData10.mov

Spring simulation movie (QuickTime). This movie shows the positions of the vertices, colored by aggregate measured polar angle, during the spring simulation used in this paper. The aggregate was produced using the 10° dataset. Note that the level of confidence in each vertex is also shown by blending the polar angle color with the cortical surface color in the case of low-confidence measurements.
The movie shows every 50th frame of the simulation.
