AFNI HISTORY

level 4 and higher

The levels of importance go from 1 to 5, with meanings:
       1 - users would not care
       2 - of little importance, though some users might care
       3 - fairly important
       4 - a big change or new program
       5 - IMPORTANT: we expect users to know

10 Jun 2011, DR Glen, whereami, level 4 (SUPER), type 0 (GENERAL) Generic Atlas Support and new atlases Atlases, spaces and transformations are now defined in a NIML file, AFNI_atlas_spaces.niml. Transformations among spaces for coordinates are defined in that file for use by whereami and the whereami display in the AFNI GUI. The flexible naming of the spaces and atlases allows easy addition of new atlases to AFNI processing. Two new environment variables control what atlases and spaces are shown when no atlas is specified, AFNI_ATLAS_LIST and AFNI_TEMPLATE_SPACE_LIST The list of atlases now defaults to the TT_Daemon and the Eickhoff- Zilles atlases in MNI_ANAT space. Additionally, the cytoarchitectonic atlases from the Zilles, Eickhoff group have been updated to the most recent version, 1.8. ***The previous versions, 1.5, are not used in this release by default. Depending upon differences on how regions or codes are defined and used, it is possible that processing scripts and results may be affected. With this release, we also introduce three probabilistic atlases donated by the Desai group generated from a typical AFNI pipeline. These atlases contain a multitude of regions created using both @auto_tlrc and FreeSurfer.

16 Feb 2008, RW Cox, 3dTfitter, level 4 (SUPER), type 1 (NEW_PROG) new program = linear fits to voxel time series Uses L1 or L2 regression, with optional constraints to fit each voxel time series as a sum of basis time series, which can be 1D files or 3D+time datasets. Basis time series that are 1D time series are the same for all input voxels. Basis time series that are 3D+time datasets are different for each voxel. Differences from 3dDeconvolve: * Basis time series can vary across voxels. * Fit coefficients can be found with L1 or L2 error functions, and can be constrained to be positive or negative. * 3dTfitter does not compute goodness-of-fit statistics.
