A complete fMRI analysis package created with batch processing in mind. The software comprises the following general functions at the first level of individual image analysis: movement correction (interpolation and regression), time series modeling, data resampling in the wavelet domain, hypothesis testing at voxel and cluster levels. Additionally, there is code for second level analysis - group and factorial or ANOVA mapping - after co-registration of voxel statistic maps from individual images in a standard space. The main point of difference from other fMRI analysis packages is the emphasis throughout on the use of data resampling (permutation or randomization) as a basis for inference on individual, group and factorial test statistics at voxel and cluster levels of resolution. The software is mostly written in C.
Development of this software is supported as Human Brain Project/Neuroinformatics research funded by the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, and the National Institute of Mental Health.
