"Brain ggplots: plotting brain atlas data using geospatial information in R"

Switching tools to create publication ready figures for neuroimaging results is tedious and error prone. Running analyses in R and then exporting results to plot them in specialised neuroimaging software adds a level of complexity that we would ideally like to avoid. Together with my colleague Didac Vidal-Piñeiro, we developed a way to derive spatial information from brain parcellations (atlases) commonly used in neuropsychological research. Based on this, we created a set of packages that make it possible to plot brain parcellations just like geospatial maps in R, making it easier for researchers to immediately visualise their results in R. In this talk, I will walk through some of the main features of the core R package ggseg and its companions.
