VISTASOFT is the main software repository of the Vista lab at Stanford University. It contains Matlab code to perform a variety of analysis on MRI data, including functional MRI and diffusion MRI.

It has the following modules:

  • mrAlign : Aligning functional and anatomical data
  • mrAnatomy: Handling anatomical MRI data.
  • mrBOLD : analysis of functional MRI data.
  • mrDiffusion : Diffusion MRI, including DTI and tractography.
  • mrMesh : displaying MR data on rendered 3D surface representations of the brain.
  • mrQuant : quantitative MRI (see also mrQ)
  • mrScripts : a variety of useful scripts

And in addition:

  • utilities
  • setup
  • tutorials
  • external: functions written by others that we use as dependencies (see optional software).
