B.1.5 Spring Color Palette

B.1.5.1 Spring Color Palette Description (Informative)

The Spring Color Palette is suggested for use in color fMRI activation maps. It shades from one pastel color to another which is distinctly different, making it suitable for illustrating either unipolar or bipolar activation. As part of a complementary set of color palettes (Spring, Summer, Fall, Winter), it conveys activation strength within one statistical parametric map, while making it possible for the human observer to distinguish between different fMRI activation maps in the same blended display. A typical example is illustrated in Figure B.1.5.1-1.
