The Atlas package provides a collection of anatomical and functional atlases of the human cerebellum. The atlases are provided as NIFTI-volumes in two subdirectories:

The following atlases are included:

Probabilistic atlas of cerebellar lobules:

The anatomical definitions are based on the fMRI atlas of an individual cerebellum by Schmahmann et al. (2000). We manually identified the main lobules on MRI scans of 20 healthy young participants (ROIs 1-28). Using a different set of 23 participants, we also identified the deep cerebellar nuclei (ROIs 29-34).

Task free parcellation:

Buckner et al. (2011) presented the first comprehensive functional atlas of the human cerebellum, based on the correlation of each cerebellar voxel and with cortical resting state networks. based on the data from 1000 subjects. A parcellation of 7 and 17 regions is available.

Buckner_17Networks.nii: Assignment of cerebellar voxels to the 17 network parcellation


Ji et al. (2019) presented a parcellation of subcortical structures based on correlation with 10 cortical networks, based on the HCP resting state data.

Multi-domain task battery (MDTB) parcellation:

King et al. (2019) provided an extensive characterization of the functional organization of the cerebellum, by collecting data from 47 task conditions in 24 healthy, young participants. Based on the the task data, a parcellation of the cerebellum in 7, 10, or 17 regions was supplied.

Retinotopic maps of the cerebellum

Based on an openly available 7T data set for retinotopic mapping, van Es et al. (2019) identified 3 areas in the human cerebellum that showed lateralized visual activity. The area in the oculo-motor vermis (OVM) and lobule VIII could further be subdivided into a medial and lateral aspect.

Somatotopic organisation based on HCP task data set

Based on the movement conditions of the HCP data set (Barch et al. 2013), we derived a winner-take-all map for left foot, right foot, left hand, right hand, and tongue conditions.
