  • Neuroimaging produces huge amounts of complex data that are used to better understand the relations between brain structure and function. Observing that the neuroimaging community is still largely missing appropriate tools to store and organize the knowledge related to the data, Parietal team and Poldrack's lab, have decided to join forces to set up a framework for functional brain image meta-analysis, i.e. a framework in which several datasets can be jointly analyzed in order to accumulate information on the functional specialization of brain regions. MetaMRI will build upon Poldrack's lab expertise in handling, sharing and analyzing multi-protocol data and Parietal's recent developments of machine learning libraries to develop a new generation of meta-analytic tools.
