Displaying fMRI images in 3D on the web using three.js

No Comments

Publishing fMRI results usually involves the presentation of slice images that show regions of increased BOLD (Blood Oxygen Dependent Signal). However, fMRI data is inherently three dimensional and often it is difficult to visualise or appropriately present data in 2D formats.

Psychophysics experiments often require passing messages and signals between different computers and devices. There are a number of methods that are generally used and the limitations of these methods are often a source of consternation for researchers.
Experiments designed to probe human temporal perception are particularly sensitive to timing errors in the apparatus. Therefore we have …

Recently, our lab has been working on a general timing measurement system to ensure that psychophysical timing of experiments is valid with different experimental setups ranging from calibrated lab CRT monitors to LCD projectors in MRI facilities.
Essentially, we aim to have a portable and easy to use recorder of digital and analogue signals that can …

One of the perennial jobs for researchers, is producing production quality documents. This task often becomes more complicated than it should be due to the tools applied to it. Just as applying a blunt chisel to a good piece of wood will produce an amateurish result, using a blunt program will produce a substandard document (or …
