1. The MNI305 digitized structural MRI template used in this software package is due to:
-Collins DL, Neelin P, Peters TM, Evans AC. Automatic 3D intersubject registration of MR volumetric data in standardized Talairach space. J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1994 Mar-Apr;18(2):192-205.
-A. C. Evans and D. L. Collins, ``A 305-member MRI-based stereotactic atlas for CBF activation studies,'' in Proceedings of the 40th Annual Meeting of the Society for Nuclear Medicine, 1993.

2. The MNI152 digitized structural MRI template used in this software package is due to:
Mazziotta et al., ``A probabilistic atlas and reference system for the human brain: International Consortium for Brain Mapping (ICBM)''. Philos Trans R Soc Lond B Biol Sci. 2001 Aug 29;356(1412):1293-322.

3. The Colin27 digitized structural MRI template used in this software package is due to:
Holmes CJ, Hoge R, Collins L, Woods R, Toga AW, Evans AC. Enhancement of MR images using registration for signal averaging. J Comput Assist Tomogr. 1998 Mar-Apr;22(2):324-33

4. Cortical surfaces were produced with the CARET software from the Van Essen lab:

5. The Van Essen average cortex used in this software package is due to:
-Van Essen, D.C. (2005) A population-average, landmark- and surface-based (PALS) atlas of human cerebral cortex. Neuroimage 28: 635-662

6. Electrode coordinates on the MNI152 scalp for the 10/5 system are based on the contributions of Ippeita Dan:
- 10/20, 10/10 and 10/5 systems revisited: their validity as relative head-surface-based positioning systems. Valer Jurcak and Ippeita Dan. Submitted to Neuroimage.
The 5% system was developed by Robert Oostenveld:
- R. Oostenveld and P. Praamstra. The five percent electrode system for high-resolution EEG and ERP measurements. Clin Neurophysiol, 112:713-719, 2001.
I’ve benefited from very useful discussions with these two colleagues.

7. Extensive use has been made of the Talairach Atlas [Talairach J, Tournoux P (1988). Co-planar stereotaxic atlas of the human brain. Thieme, New York], and of the “Talairach Daemon” [Lancaster JL, Woldorff MG, Parsons LM, Liotti M, Freitas CS, Rainey L, Kochunov PV, Nickerson D, Mikiten SA, Fox PT, "Automated Talairach Atlas labels for functional brain mapping". Human Brain Mapping 10:120-131, 2000].

8. Correction/conversion from MNI to Talairach space is based on:
Brett M. Johnsrude IS. Owen AM. The problem of functional localization in the human brain. Nature Reviews Neuroscience. 3(3):243-249, 2002 Mar. (

9. I have made use of color scales in the form of LUTs from the ImageJ software ( and from the MRIcro software by:
Rorden, C., Brett, M. (2000). Stereotaxic display of brain lesions. Behavioural Neurology, 12, 191-200.

10. The Interpolating Bitmap Resampler routine used in this software is due to Anders Melander.

11. The electric potential lead field used here was kindly provided by Manfred Fuchs. He computed it with the Curry 5 software, using the boundary element method on the MNI152 template. His contribution allows us to finally depart from the spherical head, to a much improved realistic head model:
