This is a pretty basic question. I have freesurfer data for the left and right hemisphere in .mgz format. The volumetric data has already been linked etc. I would like to use SUMA to create .niml datasets so that we can use 3dMVM or 3dLME for our group analysis. Running the following errors:
@SUMA_Make_Spec_FS -sid taskBOLD_SST_S10 -use_mgz -NIFTI
failure: cannot find directory ‘orig’ or file ‘orig.mgz’ under surf
program failure: exiting…
-fspath = path to ‘surf’ and ‘orig’ directories. < I don’t have these files just the .mgz. Therefore, is there a workaround? Like I mentioned, the real purpose is to get freesurfer surface data in a usable format for 3dLME and 3dMVM.
Lastly, although 3dMVM and 3dLME are computationally expensive, would they work with 12,000 subjects as long as there is enough computing power?
