Hi Nicky and SPM'ers

There is evidence that it is possible to detect activation in white matter (some example references below) but because it is so controversial, it's very important to verify that your registrations were OK. You might want to look at the activation at the individual subject level, overlaid on the subjects' brains, without performing any standard space registration.

Subject: Re: [SPM] corpus callosum activity in older adult sample

Hi Nicole,

In your population, the assumption of the common space (defined by young
and healthy adults) likely does not hold true, so I would not be too
worried about that (but then again, I have never been a strong believer
in the idea that coordinates will always tell you the truth :)

What I would do is to write out the normalized T1 (using the same seg_sn
parameters you used to normalize your EPIs) and then average them. If
you then overlay your activation on this average image, it should tell
you where your cluster actually is with respect to your group average.
Also, remember that smoothing will always blur the images so that parts
of a cluster may well be in CSF, WM, or air, so some inclusion of non-GM
is not too uncommon.

Hope this helps,
Marko
