[FieldTrip] MNI coordinate to Anatomy

Dear Rajat,


you can use ft_volumelookup in Fieldtrip (ahja, Arjen beat me to it!).

You can also specify an atlas in your cfg when using ft_sourceplot, which will show the anatomical label according to that atlas.

You need to specify an atlas which is in the same coordinate system, see

Subject: [FieldTrip] MNI coordinate to Anatomy


​Dear Fieldtrip users,


If I give you an MNI coordinate (in mm), is there a function (say from the SPM Anatomy toolbox) that I can use to get a label associated with that location?


(Without using the GUI)


Thank you.
