Computing Resources

The MRI Research Program is currently in the early stages of implementing its own docker-based processing cluster that will allow researchers access to the ABCD processing pipelines as well as other analysis packages. 

Our previous grid-engine based scheduling system is currently available on our legacy cluster and has the following software packages available: 

AFNI - an open-source environment for processing and displaying functional MRI data

FSL - A software library with image analysis tools for functional, structural, and diffusion MRI brain imaging data.

Freesurfer - a set of tools for the analysis of structional and functional brain imaging data.

SPM - a suite of MATLAB tools for the analysis of brain imaging data sequences

For access and account information, email 


Software available via network on an additional server: 


LCModel - Automatic quantitation of in vivo proton MR spectra.

JMRUI - a software package for advanced time-domain analysis of magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) and spectroscopic imaging (MRSI) data.


As a means for running both computationally intensive applications and storing vast amounts of data, the Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (C2B2) provides a computational cluster, HPC, to NYSPI and associated projects.
