Creating custom surface figures of Destrieux Atlas

Hi all – we have used CAT12 to extract cortical thickness values from our participants (Destrieux Atlas), and then submitted those ROI thickness values to a partial least-squares analysis, testing for group differences.

This provides us with a bootstrap ratio for each ROI, giving us a measure of the reliability of each ROIs contribution to the latent variable.

We’d prefer to not only list the reliable ROIs, but also generate a figure for these results.

Can anyone point me to a useful resource that lets you create surface figures based on custom values for each ROI in the Destrieux Atlas? Preferrably in Matlab/cat12 but am open to anything! :slight_smile:

Cheers,
Reece

You could use Surfice for this task using a simple Python script (which you can call from Matlab). The Scripting/Python provides a lot of examples.

Here is a brief script, where you just want to change the paths to point to the location of your CAT12 installation. This shows an image where Destrieux Atlas region 14,50, 26 have statistical values of 7.8, 3.1, and 4 respectively.

import gl
gl.resetdefaults()
pth = '/Users/chrisrorden/Neuro/spm12/toolbox/cat12'
mesh = pth + '/templates_surfaces/rh.inflated.freesurfer.gii'
atlas = pth+'/atlases_surfaces/rh.aparc_a2009s.freesurfer.annot'
outpth =  '/Users/chrisrorden/Neuro'
outmesh = outpth+'surficetemp.mz3';
gl.meshload(mesh)
gl.atlasstatmap(atlas, outmesh, (14,50, 26),(7.8,3.1,4))
gl.meshload(mesh)
gl.overlayload(outmesh)
gl.shaderxray(1.0, 1.0)
gl.overlayminmax(1,2,7)
gl.azimuthelevation(90, 15)

Thank you Chris–exactly what we were after! :slight_smile:
