Lipsia - a software tool for processing functional magnetic resonance imaging
Lipsia is a software tool for processing functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. It was developed over the course of several years at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany.
Lipsia contains software tools for all aspects of fMRI data processing:
- registration and normalization
- exploratory processing
- statistical evaluation
- region of interest analysis
- timecourse analysis
- visualization, rendering
- converters to various data formats
It was developed in C/C++ on Linux PCs. Lipsia provides extremely fast implementations. A standard analysis sequence from the raw data to a statistical parametric map generally takes less than 10 minutes per test subject.
