DESCRIPTIONLipsia is a software package for the data processing and evaluation of functional magnetic resonance images. It was developed over the course of several years at the Max-Planck-Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig, Germany. The analysis of fMRI data comprises various aspects including filtering, spatial transformation, statistical evaluation as well as segmentation and visualization. All these aspects are covered by Lipsia. For the statistical evaluation, a number of well established and peer-reviewed algorithms were implemented in Lipsia that allow an effcient and user-friendly processing of fMRI data sets. As the amount of data that must be handled is enormous, an important aspect in the development Lipsia was the efficiency of the software implementation.
Lipsia currently operates exclusively on data in the VISTA data format. However, the package contains converters for medical image data in iBruker, ANALYZE and NIfTI format -- converting VISTA images into NIfTI files is also supported.
Lipsia documentation and online help is provided by the lipsia-doc package, and is accessible through the `lipsia-help` command.
