-I downloaded TOM from your site some days ago, but I didn't try it yet
because I wanted to use SPM8. Then is it possible to generate the priors
with TOM and SPM5 and then use them in SPM8 (replacing the apriori folder
files), or should I process all the analysis with SPM5?
I have read that it's possible to generate your own template using your own
T1 images, I'll try to do that.
-I'll check FDR, thanks for the tip! :)
-Can I ask a couple of basic questions more?
Do researchers use "uncorrected" option when showing activation maps, or is
it more trustworthy to use FWE or FDR?
The voxel extent threshold sets the minimum size of the clusters that will
be shown. Does it work only after the statistical map is calculated, merely
not showing the clusters smaller than the value?
Thank you very much for your help!
Have a nice day :)
