Question Posted 05/07/14:
Hi,
I'm using the Freesurfer data available through ADNI for my research, but couldn't find the .annot file (annotations/labels) file for the cortical parcellation that freesurfer provides. Can you please explain where these files are available?

Thanks!

Thank you for your question to the ADNI MRI Core.

After consulting with the group who performs the ADNI freesurfer analysis it has been determined that:

For the ADNI study, the analysis group only uploads spreadsheets that contain FreeSurfer volumetric information. Unfortunately they do not upload the .annot files (or any of their FreeSurfer-generated files) to LONI, as it would be extremely time-intensive given the size of the ADNI project. It would be possible for individuals to generate the .annot files manually by downloading the preprocessed T1s from the LONI website and running them through FreeSurfer.


Thank you
