Probabilistic Atlases of the Midbrain

Atlases of the Substantia Nigra
Atlases of the Ventral Tegmental Area
Atlases of the Midbrain
All Midbrain Atlases

The atlases have been described in the following papers:

Pyneal Real-Time fMRI Analysis Software

Note: Pyneal was designed to work with the GE MRI scanning environment at Duke University. Different environments at different institutions may require aspects of the code to be modified, particularly the steps related to accessing dicom images and sending to the real-time analysis machine.
