Functional MRI presents - among many others - informatics challenges, such as efficient and error-proof processing and management of large volumes of data, record keeping and complex visualization. Our software tools X-batch and MindSeer were developed to resolve these common issues. X-batch addresses two needs of fMRI analysis: i) automation of statistical image processing; and ii) management of images and metadata. MindSeer is a cross-platform visualization tool for 3D neuroimaging data. The standalone version is hardware accelerated and provides a highly interactive visualization experience, whereas a web-enabled client/server version allows remote visualization of neuroimaging data on any computer with internet access.
