Hi MNE Listserv.

I am looking to employ MNE to examine subcortical surfaces like amygdala and perhaps thalamus. Two studies have used MNE in part to accomplish this :

1) J Vis Exp. 2013 Jun 3;(76). doi: 10.3791/50212.

How to detect amygdala activity with magnetoencephalography using source imaging.

Balderston NL1, Schultz DH, Baillet S, Helmstetter FJ.

2) Article Source: MEG Evidence for Dynamic Amygdala Modulations by Gaze and Facial Emotions

Dumas T, Dubal S, Attal Y, Chupin M, Jouvent R, et al. (2013) MEG Evidence for Dynamic Amygdala Modulations by Gaze and Facial Emotions. PLoS ONE 8(9): e74145. doi: 10.1371/journal.pone.0074145

These studies however do not make clear however how to do the following:

-Merge amygdala surface with cortical surfaces

-Create and add sources at the amygdala vertices to those found in the cortex for subsequent model creation and source estimation.

If anyone has been down this road or has some suggestions I would be most appreciative.


Thanks// dave
