FreeSurfer Tutorial and Workshop

Course Policies

Getting the tutorial data

Please DO NOT try to download the tutorial data during the course! We have copies of this data stored on servers located in the course room. Attempting to download this data from the public link (this link) during the course presents excessive and unnecessary load on our network, and likely will fail due to this load. Please contact a staff member for help in getting this data if needed outside of the course.

Wifi

You may connect to any of the following wifi networks in the classroom area (all networks use the same password):

  • Name: nmrclass1_wifi_2.4Ghz,  nmrclass1_wifi_5Ghz,  lcn_guest2,  lcn_guest5

    Password: brain.map

About the Course

The FreeSurfer tools deal with two main types of data: volumetric data (volumes of voxels) and surface data (polygons that tile a surface). The talks and tutorials should familiarize you with FreeSurfer's volume and surface processing streams. The tutorials also describe some of FreeSurfer's tools for registering volumetric datasets, performing group analysis on morphology data, and integrating multi-modal output with FreeSurfer (overlaying color-coded parametric maps onto the cortical surface and visualizing plotted results).

Note: During the tutorial sessions, you will be shown a variety of commands. Only those that appear in a box should be copy-and-pasted into the terminal. They will look like this:

command arg1 arg2

Tip for Mac users: The tutorials often refer to keyboard shortcuts (such as Alt+v) which do not work on a Mac. For a list of equivalent keyboard commands on a Mac, please refer to MacCommands.
