Note that this reference documentation is identical to the help that is displayed in Matlab when you type “help ft_prepare_atlas”.
FT_PREPARE_ATLAS reads in a specified atlas with coordinates and anatomical labels. It either uses the AFNI brik file that is available from http://afni.nimh.nih.gov/afni/doc/misc/ttatlas_tlrc, or it uses one of the WFU atlasses available from http://fmri.wfubmc.edu. This function is called by other FieldTrip functions that make use of an atlas, for example for plotting or for selection of an anatomical region of interest. Use as [atlas] = ft_prepare_atlas(cfg) where the configuration should contain cfg.atlas string, filename of the atlas to use See also FT_VOLUMELOOKUP, FT_SOURCEPLOT, FT_SOURCESTATISTICS
