This downloadable package contains electronic protocols a “Connectomic/HCP style” set of acquisitions. The protocols are configured for import into a Siemens 3T Prisma, acquiring the following scan series: 0.8 mm T1w/T2w structurals, 2.0 mm fMRI, and 1.5 mm dMRI.
This protocol is substantially similar to the parameters used for scanning of the Phase 1b Lifespan Pilot protocol on the Prisma at the Center for Magnetic Resonance Research (CMRR) at the University of Minnesota, but does differ in some regards (see “Version Changes” below).
VE11 version note
This package contains protocols exported under both VD13D and VE11B:
"CCF_Prisma_VE11B_2016.07.14.exar1". The VD13D and VE11B versions are identical in their imaging parameters. However, it is recommended that VE11 users import the VE11 specific version, because of a couple quirks during the import/conversion process from VD13.
The multi-band accelerated EPI sequences developed at CMRR that are necessary to run this protocol are available at: https://www.cmrr.umn.edu/multiband/
If you have questions about this protocol, you can ask them in the HCP Users email list.
Release 2016.03.07 (VD13D and VE11B versions, created under multi-band release “R013”)
Release 2015.11.30 (VD13D, created under multi-band release “R012c”)
Relative to the parameters used in the “Phase 1b Lifespan Pilot” the main changes of interest are:
