Caret (Computerized Anatomical Reconstruction and Editing Toolkit) is designed for interactively generating (segmenting), viewing, manipulating, registering, and analyzing surface reconstructions of the cerebral cortex. The Caret User's Guide contains detailed tutorials for segmentation generation, surface reconstruction, surface visualization, flattening, and registration using downloadable exemplar data sets.
