AFNI Message Board

Dear AFNI users-

We are very pleased to announce that the new AFNI Message Board framework is up! Please join us at:

Existing user accounts have been migrated, so returning users can login by requesting a password reset. New users can create accounts, as well, through a standard account creation process. Please note that these setup emails might initially go to spam folders (esp. for NIH users!), so please check those locations in the beginning.

The current Message Board discussion threads have been migrated to the new framework. The current Message Board will remain visible, but read-only, for a little while.

Sincerely, AFNI HQ

The AFNI team is pleased to announce the latest annual contribution to the AFDI* project. This year, we are combining the old and the new - phrenology together with deep learning, in what we call "Deep Phrenology". Here, we believe for the first time, the well established science of phrenology is merged with the emerging computing trend of deep learning. In our implementation, we literally bring the phrenology mapping from the skull to deep within the brain.

The exciting application for this new synergy is included in our brand new "cranium and skull investigation" program, 3dCSI. This software uses both new and old technologies to determine brain "fingerprinting" of suspects. Syntax is show below:

3dCSI -enhance -enhance -ENHANCE -input DSET

Also find below the input data and the perhaps surprising results with just our first test! An example script is also provided.

Try it out for yourself, if you've got the gall!1
