Brief description
The b2k and b2kf images ("b" for baboon, "f" for blood flow) are intended for use as templates for automated 3D image registration algorithms for neuroimaging stidies in baboons. The b2k template is an average (after spatial normalization) of T1-weighted MRI images from 9 normal baboons, and the b2kf template is averaged from 397 [15O]water PET images in 7 normal baboons. Coordinates from the 1968 Davis and Huffman photomicrographic atlas of baboon brain can be derived from pixel coordinates in these images according to the conventions described here (they are automatically computed by SPM based on the supplied .hdr files). Details of the images' formation and a test of the accuracy of our image registration software when registering MPRAGE and PET blood flow images to these templates appear in NeuroImage. Corresponding images are also available for use with Macaca nemestrina (the pig-tailed macaque) and Macaca fascicularis (cynomolgus monkey).
