Hi SPM-ers,

I am seeing odd activation patterns in my data, specifically "dalmation-like" activation, where one or two voxel "clusters" are activated throughout the brain, with very few clusters larger than that. Does anyone know what might account for this? I haven't smoothed the data as I am interested in very small regions (hippocampal subregions)- could the lack of smoothing be a reason for these strange patterns?
