Software

Introduction

SPM is made freely available to the [neuro]imaging community, to promote collaboration and a common analysis scheme across laboratories. The software represents the implementation of the theoretical concepts of Statistical Parametric Mapping in a complete analysis package.

The SPM software is a suite of MATLAB (The MathWorks, Inc) functions and subroutines with some externally compiled C routines. SPM was written to organise and interpret our functional neuroimaging data. The distributed version is the same as that we use ourselves.

Licence

SPM is free but copyright software, distributed under the terms of the GNU General Public Licence as published by the Free Software Foundation (either version 2, as given in file spm_LICENCE.man, or at your option, any later version).
