Depicted is a schematic representation of ROI, as defined by Mawlawi et al (2001). On the left, the ROI are delineated by ANIMAL-INSECT segmentation (Collins and Evans, 1997) 8 mm rostral to the anterior commissure. On the right, hand drawn ROI are superimposed over an averaged MRI, coronal plane (x=8). VS: limbic ventral striatum, composed of the nucleus accumbens and both the ventral putamen and ventral caudate rostral to the anterior commissure; DP: sensory motor dorsal putamen; DC: associative dorsal caudate.
