Abstract

Using publicly available software packages (BrainVoyager, SPM, AFNI and FreeSurfer), performing multiple cortical representation methods for most of the necessary processing steps in fMRI data analyses. We will argue that specifying where in the brain activation has occurred is both conceptually and technically more difficult than has been generally assumed. In this report, we briefly presented methods related to the most commonly used analysis pipeline. (1) An automated procedure was performed to localize the borders between early visual areas, and retinotopic maps were projected onto flattened cortical surface representations obtained by BrainVoyager Qx 2.0.7. (2) Attention and face cortex response areas were defined by SPM8. (3) Functional data analyses were performed to integrate the cortex surface by AFNI and FreeSurfer. The results presenting the most suitable and valuable data processing applications using three of the types of software described above.
