Slice Display

Overview

Slice Display is a MATLAB toolbox for visualizing fMRI data. Besides standard fMRI displays, it can make dual-coded images (simultaneous display of contrast estimate and unthreshold t-statistic maps). Data visualizations can be entirely scripted, so that generating figures is easy and reproducible.

Typical visualization of fMRI data - thresholded t-map

Alternative visualization of fMRI data - dual-coded map

  • Simultaneous display of effect size (color-coded) and unthresholded inferential statistics (opacity-coded)
  • Contours distinguish statistically significant and non-significant voxels
  • Show more and hide less, while allowing for spatial localization

Getting started

Requirements

Installation

You can either download the code as a ZIP file or you can clone the code:

To download the code:

  1. Go to the Slice Display repository on GitHub.
  2. Select 'Download ZIP' from the green 'Clone or download' button.

To clone the code, run the following command on the command line (require Git to be installed):

git clone https://github.com/bramzandbelt/slice_display.git

Usage

See the example scripts in the directory 'examples'.
