BrainVoyager BrainTutor

This is a screenshot of me playing with the BrainVoyager BrainTutor. BrainVoyager make fMRI analysis and visualisation software, and they’re kind enough to offer this interactive guide to different cortical regions for free.

Pictures can’t describe how much fun it is to play with, adding and removing the different hemispheres, labels, views, rotating the whole head, etc. It’s a shame they don’t have more areas programmed in at the moment (it’s just the lobes the gyri and sulci – but there’s a promising ‘forthcoming’ button for Brodmann areas).

One reply on “BrainVoyager BrainTutor”

My god this fun. Is it even work, I begin to wonder, as I zoom in and out, up and down through the slices. One thing I’d like to do is progress through the hemispheres, moving through them as you can do with the solid head in the ‘slicing modes’; I can’t figure out how to do this. Also, in the orthographic display mode, I wish they used the ‘spare’ screen to save ‘last slice’, so I could isolate one area of interest, stack it there and then sift through the brain for something else, to compare.

still, very cool software.
