CBRAIN is a collaborative, web-enabled grid platform that allows researchers to perform computationally expensive analyses on distributed data by connecting them to High-Performance Computing (HPC) facilities across Canada and around the World.
LORIS is a web-accessible database solution for neuroimaging. LORIS provides a secure online database infrastructure to automate the flow of clinical data for complex multi-site neuroimaging studies.
The BrainBrowser Surface Viewer is a WebGL-based 3D viewer for displaying 3D brain surfaces in real-time and superimposing various data to those surfaces (such as statistical maps, or fiber tract or volume objects).
The MINC file format (conceived and developed by Peter Neelin in 1992) provides a flexible medical imaging data format. Since 2006, MINC2 provides support for multi-gigabyte datasets. MINC2 is backward compatible and supports the original MINC data (based on NetCDF data format).
A fully automated easy-to-use human brain imaging pipeline for preprocessing, quality control and analysis of large MRI data sets.
Brainweb is a tool designed to address the validation problem in morphological neuroimaging. Brainweb makes it possible to generate a Simulated Brain Database (SBD), a set of realistic MRI data volumes produced by an MRI simulator. These data can be used by the neuroimaging community to evaluate the performance of various image analysis methods in a setting where the truth is known.
The “BigBrain” dataset consists of 7404 stained sections of a post-mortem human brain which has been analyzed in collaboration with Dr. Amunts’ and Dr. Zilles’ team from the Juelich Research Center, Germany. The full dataset, acquired in Juelich, totals one Terabyte. During the development of the numerous components for the BigBrain 3D reconstruction, project collaborators located on different continents had to be able to frequently visualize different intermediate versions of the full size 3D brain model.
