Where is the 40 week template?

I’ve download the four datasets from the torrents. I have the fMRI EPIs that have been warped to a template, but I can’t find the template itself. Am I missing it? Or is it available somewhere else?

Relatedly, is there a recommended best path for mapping adult MNI space into this template space? Maybe just normalisation of the template images?

Hi Rhodri

The dHCP volumetric template can be downloaded here:

The 40wk template is defined as the “standard” template space.

We don’t have a specific recommendation for how best to register to the MNI. I believe one of my colleagues may have registered the dHCP template via a child atlas to the MNI. I can’t recall the exact details right now, but I will look into and get back to you.

Cheers, Sean

Thank you very much Sean!

Dear Sean,

I came across this post and wanted to ask whether there is newer information in this direction? I would like to perform transformation between the 40week template and adult MNI space.

Best wishes,


Hi Juan

I provide transforms from the dHCP atlas (original and extended) to MNI (6th gen and 2009) here:

Cheers, Sean

I hadn’t seen the extended atlas, thank you very much!
