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), and BrainSync, a method for temporal synchronization of resting fMRI data across subjects.
By representing data with respect to the BCI-DNI (combined surface/volume atlas) and the HCP’s grayordinate representation, we aim to facilitate the use of BFP with existing analysis tools.
