SPM and BrainVoyager

The authors of SPM and BrainVoyager are collaborating on the creation of an efficient interface between these two image analysis environments. The goal of this collaboration is to provide users of both software packages with an easy, reliable and approved method to import functional data analyzed with SPM into BrainVoyager for visualization of that data on reconstructed, inflated and flattened representations of the cortical sheet. A first version of appropriate export/import routines will be made available at the end of this year. These will allow current users of SPM96 to write files that enter easily into BrainVoyager. SPM98 will have this facility integrated within it. For further information about SPM, see http://www.fil.ion.ucl.ac.uk/spm/.
