Release Name: MENGA3.1

- We have developed two independent adds-on: MENGA_GENE_EXPRESSION and MENGA_GENOMIC_PLOT

The two functions:
1) extract mRNA data in log2 values (MENGA_GENE_EXPRESSION.m), in case one wants to analyse transcriptome data without having to complete the integration imaging-genomic analysis;
2) extract mRNA data in linear scale (MENGA_GENOMIC_PLOT.m) to be used to implement the genomic plot (Veronese M, Zanotti-Fregonara P, Rizzo G, Bertoldo A, Innis RB, Turkheimer FE. Measuring specific receptor binding of a PET radioligand in human brain without pharmacological blockade: The genomic plot. Neuroimage. 2016 Apr 15;130:1-12. doi: 10.1016/j.neuroimage.2016.01.058. Epub 2016 Feb 2).

Both new functions exploit MENGA database without the need to select an image folder, the only settings to define are the level of resolution (i.e. list of regions) and the gene list (i.e. the txt file with the list of genes – defined accordingly ABA database).

Therefore, the processed ABA database has remained the same: if you already have downloaded MENGA 3.0, you just need to download the updated code ( and the updated manual.
If you don't have the full database, you can download it from the url:
