                  Analysis of Functional NeuroImages

Software for viewing and analyzing human brain functional MRI (FMRI)
results overlaid in color onto higher resolution anatomical data.

Features:
  -- 3D data sets, viewed in cuts along the three cardinal planes
     (i.e., sagittal, axial, and coronal);
  -- transformation to stereotaxic (Talairach-Tournoux) coordinates,
     using manual labeling of anatomical landmarks (e.g., the
     anterior and posterior commissures);
  -- merger of multiple data sets;  projection onto orthogonal planes;
  -- input of 8 and 16 bit image files
     (8 bit: "raw pgm";  16 bit: GE Signa and "raw data" formats).

Requirements:
  -- Unix workstation + X11 8/12-bit Pseudocolor graphics;
  -- Motif 1.2 and ANSI C compiler needed to compile;
  -- Binaries are available for HP-UX 9.0x, SGI IRIX 5.2, and SunOS
     4.1.3 (the last is statically linked, and does not require the
     Motif libraries to be present on the target system);
  -- PostScript printer to print the manual.

How to get it:
  -- Print out the form below, copy it onto your institutional letterhead,
     sign it, and FAX it to 414-266-8515 (snail-mail is also OK).
  -- I will then send you e-mail about how to access MCW AFNI, and put you
     on the e-mailing list for notice about bug fixes, other upgrades,
     and so forth.
  -- This procedure is to ensure that I have a list of users, and that the
     users are legitimate researchers.

Cost:
  -- $0.00 (but you have to pay for the FAX or stamp).
