MNI ICBM 152 non-linear 6th Generation Symmetric Average Brain Stereotaxic Registration Model

This is a version of the ICBM Average Brain – an average of 152 T1-weighted MRI scans, linearly and non-linearly (6 iterations) transformed to form a symmetric model in Talairach space – that is specially adapted for use with the MNI Linear Registration Package (mni_autoreg).
