A database generator for the neuroimaging community: neurogenerator

Objective

No facility exists to systematically evaluate the huge amount of neuroimaging data created in Europe. Different research groups use different software for image analysis and different statistical software. This leads to inhomogeneity of end-results and makes comparison of results, detection of consistencies and inconsistencies among research groups and meta-research impossible. We propose a database generator for 3D+ images of the brain working on a large database of raw data from PET and FMRI scanners all over Europe. The raw data are mathematically treated with image analysis and statistical software to produce homogenous data in a single statistical and anatomical format. The homogenous data and cytoarchitectural reference maps are surrounded by database software to yield a portable homogenous database product (HDP)to be modelled with advanced query tools and create a model of the organisation of the cerebral cortex in man.
