Montreal Neuroscience Institute (MNI) brain template, bases on Talairach coordinate, is used widely in fMRI researches around the world. However, the difference or distortion between MNI brain template and the averaged Chinese brain may lead to mismatch issue in functional neuroimaging among Taiwanese subjects. Therefore, we developed a novel Taiwanese NTU brain template (NTUtemplate) to solve this mismatch issue (n=120). Using optimized Modified Driven Equilibrium with Fourier Transform (MDEFT) gradient-echo sequence, high quality 3D T1-weighted MR images with high gray-and-white-matter contrast could be obtained in a reasonable resolution (1.0 x 1.0 x 1.0 mm3).
