Primatologist is a BrainVISA toolbox dedicated to the processing of structural MRIs acquired in macaques (for now) and more generally in non-human primates (NHP, in the future).

Its main component is a modular segmentation pipeline for T1 or T2-weighted MRIs based on a generative model of intensities, with NHP-specific preprocessing tools. It allows segmenting the brain into 17 anatomical regions. The results can then easily be processed with Morphologist to extract meshes of the brain and sulci.

It takes advantages of the features of BrainVISA including an ontological organization of the data, the possibility to easily distribute processing on a multicore workstation or on a computing cluster, and easy quality checking with dedicated viewers.
