Welcome to the BrainSuite Website

BrainSuite is a collection of open source software tools that enable largely automated processing of magnetic resonance images (MRI) of the human brain. The major functionality of these tools is to extract and parameterize the inner and outer surfaces of the cerebral cortex, to segment and label gray and white matter structures, and to analyze diffusion imaging data. BrainSuite also provides several tools for visualizing and interacting with the data.

BrainSuite15c now available

The latest version of BrainSuite (v.15c) is available for download from the BrainSuite download page. This release includes a graphical user interface version for both Windows and Mac OSX platforms, as well as command line tools for performing cortical surface extraction, surface/volume registration, and processing of diffusion weighted images. Source code is provided under a GPLv2 license.

Important note for Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite users

The recent update to Mac OS X (Yosemite) causes the MATLAB R2012a MCR to stop working, which is needed to run SVReg and BDP. This can be fixed with three simple steps. If you are using these tools on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite, please visit this page: http://brainsuite.org/quickstart/installation/mac/yosemite/ for instructions on how to fix this issue.
