The BrainMap database is supported by the NIMH (2R01-MH074457) awarded to Peter Fox, M.D. of the Research Imaging Institute at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas and Angie Laird, Ph.D. of Flordia International University. Please email Dr. Fox or Dr. Laird if you would like to discuss your ideas for collaboration on the development of meta-analysis tools and neuroinformatics database strategies.
Jack Lancaster, Ph.D. is a Professor and Chief of the Biomedical Image Analysis Division (BIAD) at the Research Imaging Institute. Jack is an expert in spatial normalization techniques and developed the coordinate conversion algorithm, icbm2tal (Lancaster transform), to accurately compare Talairach and MNI coordinates archived in BrainMap.
Michaela Robertson is a Research Scientist at the Research Imaging Institute. She is also responsible for the initial review of incoming BrainMap submission files. Email Michaela if you have any questions regarding the submission details of a particular paper, or if you would like more information on how to submit a paper to our database.
