An automated anatomical parcellation of the spatially normalized single-subject high-resolution T1 volume provided by the Montreal Neurological Institute (MNI) and an alternative parcellation of the orbitofrontal cortex (AAL2), the anterior cingulate, the thalamus, with the addition of some brain nuclei (AAL3).
