MNI ICBM152 non-linear 6th generation symmetric Average Brain Stereotaxic Registration Model

This is a version of the ICBM Average Brain - an average of 152 T1-weighted MRI scans, linearly and non-linearly (6 iterations) transformed to form a symmetric model in Talairach space - that is specially adapted for use with the MNI Linear Registration Package (mni_autoreg).

Please note that this volume here is different from the mni305 model (average_305) that was originally (back in ancient times) included with mni_autoreg.

Included in this package are the following files:

a version of the average MRI that covers the whole brain
    (unlike the original Talairach atlas), sampled with 1mm cubic
a mask of the average brain in icbm_avg_152_t1_tal_nlin_symmetric_VI.mnc,
semi-automatically created by Dr. Louis Collins.  Note that
this mask has had holes filled in, so it is a connected volume
but includes non-brain tissue (eg. the CSF in the ventricles)
another mask (full head mask), required for nonlinear mode
    a mask of the eyes
