101 labeled brains and a new human cortical labeling protocol
Jason Tourville (Boston University), Arno Klein (Columbia University)
Here we outline a new surface-based cortical labeling protocol based on the Desikan-Killiany (DK) protocol , the “Desikan-Killiany-Tourville” (DKT) protocol that promises to be more consistent and accurate with respect to macro-anatomical landmarks than previous protocols. We evaluate this protocol by comparing FreeSurfer-automated DK labels with manually edited versions of these labels according to our DKT protocol. We created this protocol to set a new standard of labeling accuracy and consistency for use by the scientific community, as well as to create the largest and most complete set of labeled brains ever released to the public, a manually edited label set of 101 human cortices from the T1-weighted MR images of publicly available multimodal data acquired from healthy individuals (http://www.mindboggle.info/data/).
