Day 1 Practicum: BrainMap Materials


The BrainMap Taxonomy describes the experimental design of neuroimaging publications. It has many parts, but in particular:


Scribe prepares publications for entry into our databases by encoding them using our taxonomy.

The latest version of the software is available from

Sleuth searches our databases, creates "workspace" data-sets, plots coordinates in Talairach space, and supports exporting data for further analysis.

The official version can be downloaded from

There is also a pre-release version of Sleuth. It includes a "filter" search field that lets you quickly find studies within your workspace and refine your dataset.

Sleuth requires a user account, but for the workshop you can use:

GingerALE can perform analyses in Talairach or MNI space, and includes a tool for converting between them. Several thresholding options are available: P value, Family-wise Error (FWE) correction by voxel-wise ALE value or by cluster-size. Areas passing the threshold are described in "cluster stats". It is also useful for meta-analytic connectivity analysis (MACM).

The official version can be downloaded from

There is also a pre-release version of GingerALE. It includes an option for using FSL-compatible MNI152 images. It also has more support for Z scores, clarifies the statistics describing your results, and many more small improvements.

Day 2 Practicum: Mango Materials


Mango is a powerful image viewing and analysis program.

The latest desktop version is available for download.

Behavioral Analysis and Paradigm Analysis can be added to Mango as plug-ins.
