Citing Caret Software and Atlases

Acknowledging use of Caret and surface-based atlases in presentations and publications serves several purposes:

  • Gives credit where credit is due.
  • Provides information that is important for interpreting experimental results.
  • Alerts readers and listeners to brain-mapping resources that may help in their own research.

It is generally appropriate to cite both the relevant publication and the URL where the resource can be accessed. Also, it is important to distinguish between atlases (e.g., PALS) and software (e.g., Caret) and to cite each one appropriately.

Citing Caret

If you used Caret as an integral part of a research project, please cite:
