LONIR provides meaningful, instructional and interesting content that is regularly updated to reflect the current state of our research and other activities of our Resource. We provide users with the ability to download software, atlases and protocols that have been developed in our lab. In addition, a web-based database containing images, animations and other samples is available for browsing and media requests.


Brain atlases are built from one or more representations of the brain. They describe aspects of brain structure and/or function and their relationships by applying appropriate registration and warping strategies, indexing schemes and nomenclature systems. Atlases made from multiple modalities and individuals provide the capability to describe image data with statistical and visual power.

Research Protocols

LONI Resource provides investigators access to the LONI research protocols. The protocols provide collaborators and researchers with a validated set of methods that will enable them to analyze their brain imaging data. The methods have been implemented to facilitate communications and provide a well-defined standard for scientific investigation.

Software & Tools

We have created several open-source Software & Tools that service a wide variety of laboratories, nationally and internationally. Browse our list of Software & Tools below. Click on any item for more information or if you are interested in downloading the free software.

A collection of software tools for the computational analysis of brain anatomy with MRI data. It includes automated software tools from surface reconstruction to their mapping via metric optimization in the Laplace-Beltrami embedding space. It is general and can be applied to a wide range of anatomical structures including cortical, sub-cortical, and fiber bundle surfaces.
