AFNI training Bootcamp
May 27-30, 2014

Presented by Bob Cox and the NIH AFNI team

What AFNI Is

AFNI is a set of C programs for processing, analyzing, and displaying anatomical and functional MRI (FMRI) data - techniques for non-invasive mapping of human brain structure and activity. The suite also contains tools for functional and anatomical (diffusion MRI) connectivity analyses. It runs on Unix+X11+Motif systems, including SGI, Solaris, Linux, and Mac OS X. It is available free (in C source code format, and some precompiled binaries) for research purposes.

Attendees will need to bring a laptop pre-loaded with a running copy of AFNI and the class data. Attendees will also need at least a basic knowledge of Unix commands.

Link to instruction for AFNI bootcamp setup (installation and class data)

A final reminder to use the class setup link on the website which includes installation instructions for mac, linux and windows, as well as instructions for getting the class data (well, at least the former two; the windows setup comes with data to begin with). You will need to verify that AFNI is installed and running BEFORE arriving at bootcamp.

In order to obtain a basic check of AFNI, open a Terminal or X-Quartz/X-11 window. At the prompt, please enter: -check_all

Open a browser window and go to

You will be prompted to enter the email with which you registered and to cut and paste screen output from afni_system_check.
If you have problem executing the command such that no output is generated by afni_system_check, please post to the AFNI Message Board <> or email Richard Reynolds

Target Audience

The course is aimed at people who are already doing fMRI, and it is not an introduction to how fMRI works -- it is an introduction to the use of AFNI for analysis of fMRI data. If you are not going to be doing fMRI data analysis in the very near future after this class, you will probably find the Bootcamp to be a waste of your (and our) efforts.
