Start DPARSFA from NIFTI images

To whom it may concern,

I would like to start preprocessing in DPARSFA from Nifti images so I placed the images under the FunImg folder (which contains a folder for each subject). However, when I change the 'Starting Directory Name' to FunImg. I get the following warning: 'Please arrange each subject's DICOM images in one directory and then put them in FunRaw directory under the working directory' and the gui automatically revert to FunRaw (which I do not have as I want to start from nifti images).

Could you please advise how to solve this problem?

Thank you,

What's wrong with my normalization?

Resting State Preprocessing (Graph Theory)


i have a question regarding the preprocessing of my resting state data for a subsequent investigation based on the graph theory. The common preprocessing procedure for a subsequently graph theory based estimation include the following steps:

* despike
* slice timing correction
* 3D motion correction
* Regression with motion parameters
* Register to MNI

Regarding Aurich et al. (2015) the following steps are also recommended to use:

AutoMask generates a white rectangle for a single subject


I am new to DPARSFA. AutoMask doesn't seem to be working for me. It runs without errors, but doesn't properly mask it brain. It just generates a white rectangle that covers the entire area. Screenshot is attached. Please advise. Thanks.

Values of sm* ReOh maps

Dear experts,

I computed ReOh maps for some patients and controls in DPARSFA (running the participants all together, hence with the same processing settings) and got maps where the values are not between [0 1], is this correct? I expect having values between 0 and 1 due to the computation of KCC. I obtain values between 0 and 1.6/1.8.

Please advice if correct,

Thank you,

Kind regards,

ReOH and ALFF maps

Dear experts,

I am wondering whether you can give me more information about ReOh and ALFF maps or suggest some references where I can get the following information:

1) What are the typical ranges and inter subject variability of ALFF and ReOH maps?

2) Do I need to intensity normalise the maps output from DPARSFA for the ALFF and ReOh or can I use the m* output directly in the statistical analysis? If intensity normalisation is needed, could you suggest by what intensity value (whole brain, gm value)?
