A set of automated tools for reconstruction of the brain''s cortical surface from structural MRI data, and overlay of functional MRI data onto the reconstructed surface. It contains a fully automatic structural imaging stream for processing cross sectional and longitudinal data. FreeSurfer provides many anatomical analysis tools, including: representation of the cortical surface between white and gray matter, representation of the pial surface, segmentation of white matter from the rest of the brain, skull stripping, B1 bias field correction, nonlinear registration of the cortical surface of an individual with a stereotaxic atlas, labeling of regions of the cortical surface, statistical analysis of group morphometry differences, and labeling of subcortical brain structures and much more ... FreeSurfer is brought to you by the Athinoula A. Martinos Center for Biomedical Imaging.
