Standard brain atlases are commonly used in neurological applications of MRI, particularly fMRI studies. This abstract describes research attempting to develop a method to create an individual parcellation based on a single subject ICA. High quality (35 minutes) rs-fMRI data were acquired from 47 healthy subjects at 3T. A single subject ICA was performed. The components containing anatomical information were used to parcellate the brain, without the use of any other prior anatomical information. This parcellation was compared to the AAL template, and shows several anatomical features present in this template.
