# **Asymmetry of functional organization in humans and macaques**

### Here I'd like to introduce the repo for the pulication: 
Bin Wan, ┼×eyma Bayrak, Ting Xu, H Lina Schaare, Richard AI Bethlehem, Boris C Bernhardt, Sofie L Valk (2022) **Heritability and cross-species comparisons of human cortical functional organization asymmetry** *eLife* 11:e77215.

Preprint version: [Asymmetry of cortical functional hierarchy in humans and macaques suggests phylogenetic conservation and adaptation]( 

## **Scripts**
**1. Gradients in humans**
- `` summarizes the BOLD signal to the Glasser parcellation (180 parcels per hemisphere) and computes the individual functional connectivity (FC) matrix.
- `` gets the individual gradients of FC matrix, and alignes/correctes the individual gradients to the template based of group-level LL FC matrix using Procrustes rotations.
- `results_fig1.ipynb` visualizes the gradients of each FC pattern (LL, RR, LR, and RL).

**2. Asymmetry of gradients and its heritability in humans**
- `` prepares the phenotypical files for the heritability analyses with SOLAR.
- `s00_HowToRun_solar.txt` introduces how to run the analyses.
- ``,   
extract the heritablity score of each parcel (based on bash).
- `results_fig2and3.ipynb` visualizes the asymmetry of gradients and its heritability in humans.
- `results_fig5.ipynb` visualizes the functional decoding of the 24 terms along the intra-hemispheric asymmetry axis.

**3. Asymmetry of gradients in macaques** 
- `` extracts the individual gradients of FC matrix in macaques, using the same method as analyses of figure 1 (using human data)
- `results_fig4.ipynb` visualizes the asymmetry of gradients in macaques and provides a network-wise comparison between macaques and humans.

**4. Supplements**
- `` and `` provides the replication results of using normalization formula (left-right)/(left+right), Desikan-Killiany Atlas, and UKB.
- `` aligns individual gradients to another template of gradients of group-level RR FC matrix.
- ``and ``  verifies the Procrustes alignment approach by comparing it to gradients without alignment and left-right normalisation.
- `results_supplements_1.ipynb` visualizes individual gradients (**Fig1-supp2**), the results of G2 and G3 (**Fig3-supp1**), parcel-wise comparison between macaques and humans(**Fig4-supp1**), and function decoding along the inter-hemispheric asymmetry axis (**Fig5-supp1**).
- `results_supplements_2.ipynb` visualizes Cohen's d in humans (**Fig2-supp2**), normalization formula (**Fig2-supp3**), DK atlas (**Fig2-supp4**), and UKB replication (**Fig2-supp5**).
- `results_supplements_3.ipynb` visualizes asymmetry results including results of G4-10(**Fig1-supp1**), averaging the left and right alignment in macaques(**Fig4**), vertex-wise asymmetry(**Fig2-supp6**), and RR alignment in humans (**Fig2-supp10**).
- `results_supplements_4.ipynb` visualizes figures of unalignment (**Fig2-supp7** and **Fig2-supp8**), using same embedding model (**Fig2-supp9**), and top 10% FC profiles of the most asymmetric region (**Fig2-supp1**).
