A Hierarchical Atlas

Dear Colleagues,

Hi friends. I will soon manually categorize the regions in the “Eickhoff-Zilles macro labels from N27 in Talairach TT_N27 space” (AFNI_atlas_spaces.niml) available with AFNI. I will categorize them into superordinate categories (e.g., default-mode network). I prefer using these regions rather than functionally defined regions because the anatomy has fewer assumptions in my mind, there are several other networks I want (e.g., subcortical networks) besides the seven or so standard intrinsic connectivity networks, and I can analyze my data both using the superordinate categories and the nested subordinate regions.

I checked the resources on page 17 of the AFNI atlas slides ([AFNI Academy] Atlases and Templates Intro) and other resources. I did a Google and Pubmed search for “hierarchical AND human AND brain AND atlas.” All with no clear results. Has someone done this already specifically for this atlas?



P.S.: Where can I find the slides in “[AFNI Academy] Atlases and Templates Intro”? The corresponding .pdf file in
seems to be older.

There is some of the documentation here:


Let me know if that’s not the latest one. I should be able to find it…

Hi. How have you been? That does not seem to have the same slides as in the video, specifically Slide 17 with the website resources. I also checked
with the same result.

Hi Dante,
I’ve been good.

Sorry about the missing PDF. I think this is the one you have been looking for.
