Hi everyone ,
I have just started to interact with the world of neuroimaging, so I’m opening this topic to ask for explanations from more experienced people in this sector. I am currently working on a project that aims at developing a structural connectivity analysis on different bilingual patients, so as to highlight the differences with monolingual patients. Up to now, using DWI and structural images, I have managed to carry out a preprocessing phase which includes:
- noise reduction
- ringing effect removal
- motion and distortion correction
- bias field correction
Subsequently I made a registration of the structural data on the diffusion data for each patient, so as to have a correct alignment. Immediately afterwards I managed to generate the fibers, through the use of the HRF of each type of brain tissue (Gray Matter , White Matter and CSF), and to carry out the complete tractography. After various researches, I also managed to record the regions of interest for the study on an atlas, so as to make a group analysis. Now the problem is: how can I register from the MNI standard to the structural space (T1)?
