subject.morph.standard: Retrieve standard space morphometry data for a single...

Description Usage Arguments Value See Also Examples

View source: R/fsdir_abstraction_subject.R

Description

Load standard space morphometry data (like 'surf/lh.area.fwhm10.fsaverage.mgh') for a subject from disk. Uses knowledge about the FreeSurfer directory structure to load the correct file.

  fwhm = "10",
  template_subject = "fsaverage",
  format = "mgh",
  cortex_only = FALSE,
  split_by_hemi = FALSE
)

Arguments

subjects_dir

string. The FreeSurfer SUBJECTS_DIR, i.e., a directory containing the data for all your subjects, each in a subdir named after the subject identifier.

subject_id

string. The subject identifier

measure

string. Name of the vertex-wise measure of morphometry data file. E.g., "area" or "thickness". Used to construct the name of the morphometry file to be loaded.

hemi

string, one of 'lh', 'rh', or 'both'. The hemisphere name. Used to construct the names of the annotation and morphometry data files to be loaded.

fwhm

string. Smoothing as string, e.g. '10' or '25'.

template_subject

string. Template subject name, defaults to 'fsaverage'.

format

string. One of 'mgh', 'mgz', 'curv'. Defaults to 'mgh'.

cortex_only

logical, whether to mask the medial wall, i.e., whether the morphometry data for all vertices which are *not* part of the cortex (as defined by the label file 'label/?h.cortex.label') should be replaced with NA values. In other words, setting this to TRUE will ignore the values of the medial wall between the two hemispheres. If set to true, the mentioned label file needs to exist for the template subject. Defaults to FALSE.

split_by_hemi

logical, whether the returned data should be encapsulated in a named list, where the names are from 'lh' and 'rh', and the values are the respective data.

Value

vector with standard space morph data
