Thanks Matt, I am keen to generate a  single-subject-specific version using 
-cifti-separate and -label-to-volume-mapping, using the subject's own surfaces.

Could you advise how I go about doing this?

Thanks again for your help.

Thanks Tim, I have found a number of files at can I ask which is the best one to 
use for the nature paper parcellation?

Making a "nifti version" isn't a simple conversion, as some lengthy 
conversations on this list have elaborated on.

The good news: if you want a single-subject-specific version, that is possible, 
using -cifti-separate and -label-to-volume-mapping, using the subject's own 

The bad news: if you want it to be a group atlas, the currently popular volume 
registration methods aren't good enough at cortical area alignment to make our 
parcellation meaningful in a group-average volume space, and thus we do not 
recommend making a volumetric version in such a space.  In the meantime, 
surface registration avoids several difficulties inherent to volume 
registration, and was instrumental in being able to create the parcellation at 
all (via alignment of areal features).

Hi Peter,

The data for the new parcellation are available in the BALSA database, see this 

We recommend using the included Connectome Workbench scene file to conveniently 
view the data in the wb_view part of the software platform. Get Connectome 
Workbench here:

Many of the files are in the CIFTI data 
 which has a lot of advantages, but if you need NIFTI versions, you can use 
(distributed as part of Connectome Workbench) to do the conversion.

There's lots of help for using wb_command in the HCP-Users mail archive, and/or 
you could post more questions to the list.

Dear HCP team,

Is it possible to download a nifti version of the Glasser atlas featured 
recently in nature?
