Templates for In vivo Mouse Brain

The templates for in vivo mouse brain are intended for SPM normalization and segmentation (including skull-stripping). The population-averaged, stereotaxic, and tissue segmented template were created from in vivo T1WI (an isotropic resolution of 80μm) of C57Bl/6(n=30, male), BALB/cBy(n=10, male), C3H/He(n=10, male), and DBA/2 (n=10, male) mice. The voxel size of templates were multiplied by 10 to be able to use SPM directly.
