"ammo" NIAK 0.7Posted By: Pierre Bellec - Apr 9, 2014
Tool/Resource: NeuroImaging Analysis Kit (NIAK)
A bit of late announcement: "ammo" NIAK 0.7 was released in 2013. Main features:
* A new pipeline for region growing. This can be used to generate a functional brain parcellation, co ntrolling for the regions' size and/or homogeneity, at the level of an individual or a group. Methods as described in Bellec et al., Neuroimage 2006.
* A new pipeline to generate connectomes, functional connectivity maps as well as graph properties. This pipeline depends on the brain connectivity toolbox.
* A revamp of the fMRI preprocessing pipeline. Now includes regression of average signals in the ventricles and the white matter, scrubbing, regression of the global signal "a la Carbonell", regression of the motion parameters after PCA reduction, COMPCOR, symmetric or asymmetric MNI brain template, and other goodies.
* Lots of other minor features and bug fixes.
