Cortical Hierarchy Atlas of the Rhesus Macaque (CHARM)

Authors : Benjamin Jung, Paul A. Taylor, Jakob Seidlitz, Caleb Sponheim, Pierce Perkins, Leslie G. Ungerleider, Daniel Glen, Adam Messinger
Description : A novel anatomical parcellation of the macaque cerebral cortex, where the cortical sheet is subdivided into six-levels of increasingly fine-grained parcellation. The broadest level consists of the four cortical lobes and the finest level is based on the D99 atlas, with modifications that make the regions more robust when applied to low resolution (e.g. fMRI) data.

Language : Volumetric files are in NIFTI (.nii) format, while surface files are in GIFTI (.gii) format.

D99 Template and Atlas

Authors : Reveley C, Gruslys A, Ye FQ, Glen D, Samaha J, Russ BE, Saad Z, Seth AK, Leopold DA, & Saleem KS
Description : Digital version of the Saleem and Logothetis atlas with a newer, higher quality D99 surrogate MRI template. Integrated into AFNI/SUMA software.

NMT v1.3 (NIMH Macaque Template - version 1.3)

Authors : Adam Messinger, Benjamin Jung, Jakob Seidlitz, Paul Taylor, Daniel Glen
Description : A volumetric template of the rhesus macaque created by nonlinear averaging of T1-weighted anatomical MRIs from multiple adult monkeys. Surface files are included. Version 1.3 updates include: an improved mapping of the D99 atlas, improved brain masking and normalization, and files that are defined in a common template space (NMT space), using the short data type for improved storage efficiency.
Documentation : Github
Link : Github
Language : Volumetric files are in NIFTI (.nii) format, while surface files are in GIFTI (.gii) format. Scripts for processing single subjects rely on bash shell and AFNI. Some scripts also require ANTs.

NMT 2.0 Templates (NIMH Macaque Template - version 2.0)

Authors : Benjamin Jung, Paul A. Taylor, Jakob Seidlitz, Caleb Sponheim, Pierce Perkins, Leslie G. Ungerleider, Daniel Glen, Adam Messinger
Description : A collection of volumetric templates of the rhesus macaque created by nonlinear averaging of T1-weighted anatomical MRIs from multiple adult monkeys. Surface files are included. The NMT 2.0 provides increased flexibility in macaque group analysis by providing symmetric and asymmetric templates. Both templates are available with an expanded, full head field of view in Horsley-Clarke stereotaxic orientation. Updates to the templates include: an improved mapping of the D99 atlas, the addition of the CHARM and SARM atlases, improved brain masking and normalization, and files that are defined in a common template space (NMT space), using the short data type for improved storage efficiency.

Subcortical Atlas of the Rhesus Macaque (SARM)

Authors : Renée Hartig, Daniel Glen, Benjamin Jung, Nikos K. Logothetis, George Paxinos, Eduardo A. Garza-Villarreal, Adam Messinger, Henry C. Evrard
Description : An anatomical parcellation of the entire macaque subcortex tailored for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The regions-of-interest (ROIs) are hierarchically organized, with grouping levels suited for both fine structural and spatially broader functional analyses. SARM aims to facilitate the identification, localization, and study of neural interactions involving subcortical regions of the brain.
