[FieldTrip] ft_sourceinterpolate question

Hi Josh,

It seems like you are using the HCP Glasser atlas ('A multi-modal parcellation of human cerebral cortex')? The atlas presented as part of the network analysis tutorial is designed for a cortical mesh with 8004 vertices, rather than the 15002 you are using. I don’t believe ft_sourceinterpolate can currently cope with the surface-based transformation upwards from 8000—> 15000 vertices.

To use the HCP atlas you will need to downsample the original 32k atlas in fs_LR space to 15000 space and transform to whichever standard-brain template you are using. This is non-trivial and requires some functions from the HCP project (e.g. wb_command which can be found here: https://www.humanconnectome.org/software/workbench-command).

If your mesh is created using Freesurfer you can use this script here:


If the mesh is not constructed using Freesurfer it will be tricker & I would recommend contacting the HCP mailing list.

Good luck!
