Name
FIASCO (Functional Image Analysis Software Computational Olio)
Byline
CMU Statistics Department
Description

FIASCO is a collection of software designed to analyze fMRI data using a series of processing steps. The input is the raw data, and the outputs are statistical brain maps showing regions of neural activation.

Corrections for different systematic variations in the k-space (raw) data obtained from an fMRI session (head motion, ghosting, etc) are performed first. The image is then reconstructed (using the Fast Fourier Transform) and statistical analyses run. The user has a great deal of flexibility in choosing which corrections and statistics are executed. FIASCO emphasizes correct statistical models, for example for group comparisons.
