The NIHPD pipeline was originally created for processing MRI images from NIHPD project but is also currently used for many other projects.

SGE (Sun Grid Engine)

This is used for batch processing at the BIC. The SGE wiki can be found here http://wiki.gridengine.info/wiki/.


Voxel-based morphometry is a computational approach to neuroanatomy that measures differences in local concentrations of brain tissue, through a voxel-wise comparison of multiple brain images. The value of VBM is that it allows for comprehensive measurement of differences, not just in specific structures, but throughout the entire brain.

CBRAIN - http://cbrain.mcgill.ca

CBRAIN is a flexible software platform with a small footprint and minimal requirements which allows us to integrate the often extremely heterogenous research High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities across Canada and the World. Moreover, not limited to deploying a National and International distributed data and compute grid for our neuroimaging partners, the CBRAINengine drives an online collaborative web platform from which users remotely and transparently control data, compute and results, including various forms of 2D and 3D data visualisation, regardless of where these resources and data are.
