• ANIMA was written and designed by Andrew Reid, for the Institute for Neuroscience and Medicine (INM-1), in the group of Simon Eickhoff.

    People who helped in the development of ANIMA include:

    Simon Eickhoff; Katrin Amunts; Sarah Genon; Danilo Bzdok; Svenja Caspers; Edna Cieslik; Peter Fox; Felix Hoffstaedter; Angela Laird; Robert Langner; Veronika Müller; Wolfgang Rieger; and Tobias Wensing

    Data for each study were contributed by the authors of that study. See the data usage agreement (DUA) for specifics.

    The Javascript-based Papaya image viewer is an open source project developed by Jack Lancaster and Michael Martinez, at the University of Texas Health Science Center.

    For all inquiries, including data or website issues, questions about our DUA, or suggestions for improvement, please contact Andrew Reid.

  • Volume Viewer

    Volume Viewer is a stand-alone Java-based application that can be used to visualize, organize, modify, and save neuroimaging data. Volume Viewer has built-in support for importing ANIMA studies, and organizing them into a Library. You can also arrange and specify colour-mapping for a set of images, save this as a Volume Viewer Session, and share it as part of your ANIMA study. The most current version of Volume Viewer can be downloaded for your operating system by clicking the appropriate link below. More information on Volume Viewer (user guide, tutorials, etc.), can be found here.

  • Who's using ANIMA?

  • ANIMA provides an API for more tech-savvy users. This is accessible by appending one of the following commands to the ANIMA domain:

    Returns a json file with an array of URLs pointing to all redistributable study XML files. The XML file contains all metadata for the study and its elements.

    Returns a json file with an array of URLs pointing to all redistributable archives in the database (one for each study). Each archive contains the most recent version of its study.
