The BrainSuite fMRI pipeline (BFP) is an opensource software workflow for processing raw resting fMRI data. The pipeline processes resting fMRI and anatomical (T1) imaging data using a combination of software that includes BrainSuite, AFNI, and FSL, as well as MATLAB scripts.
To facilitate interaction across software packages, the processed fMRI data are represented in a common grayordinate system. Unique features of the BFP pipeline include cortically-constrained volumetric registration, global PDF-based non-local means filtering (GPDF) [4], and BrainSync [2], a method for temporal synchronization of resting fMRI data across subjects.
