fsl-5.0-core – analysis tools for FMRI, MRI and DTI brain imaging

[Note: non-standard licensing terms – please verify license compliance]

FSL is a comprehensive library of image analysis and statistical tools for fMRI, MRI and DTI brain imaging data. The suite consists of various command line tools, as well as simple GUIs for its core analysis pipelines. Among others, FSL offers implementations of standard GLM analysis, white matter tractography, tissue segmentation, affine and non-linear co-registration, and independent component analysis.

Some FSL components require additional data packages (fsl-atlases, fsl-first-data, fsl-possum-data) that are currently available from the NeuroDebian repository only. For more information on how to obtain these data packages visit http://neuro.debian.net.

Users aiming to perform a complete FSL 5.0 installation (including all data components) are advised to install the ‘fsl-5.0-complete’ package from NeuroDebian.

FSL interoperates well with other brain imaging related software. This includes Caret, FreeSurfer (cortical flattening and modelling). All FSL tools support the NIfTI format.

The software authors ask users to register. Available user statistics might be helpful to acquire funding for this project and therefore foster continued development in the future.
