Collection of Medial Temporal Lobe ROIs (N=40) & Ventral Visual Stream ROIs (N=70)
Bainbridge, W.A., Dilks, D.D., & Oliva, A. 2017. Memorability: A stimulus-driven perceptual neural signature distinctive from memory. NeuroImage
, 149, 141-152.
This is a collection of 40 sets of medial temporal lobe anatomical and 70 sets of ventral visual stream functional region of interest (ROI) definitions, collected over the course of running various fMRI image memorability experiments and pilot studies.
The MTL ROIs were all anatomically defined by hand, using a Wacom tablet and BrainVoyager's annotation functions. They include bilateral perirhinal cortex, entorhinal cortex, amygdala, hippocampus head, hippocampus body, hippocampus tail, whole hippocampus, and parahippocampal cortex definitions (16 total ROIs) for each of 40 participants.The VVS ROIs were defined based on independent functional localizers, and include the FFA, OFA, PPA, RSC, OPA, LOC, and early visual cortex for 70 participants (when identifiable). Further information on these ROIs can be found in the specific downloads. As one potential usage, these could be used to make probabilistic maps to quickly and loosely define these regions for other participants.
ROIs are available as .VOI BrainVoyager files, .txt files listing the coordinates within the ROIs (following the straightforward BV .VOI format), as MNI space MATLAB structures, and as MNI space NIfTI files. The various file conversions are still "beta" so please let me know if there are any issues.
