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) 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.
The development of the SPM software takes place on the collaborative development platform GitHub. This is the place to get access to the development version of SPM, report issues, request new features or contribute to SPM source code by proposing changes.
Current version: SPM12
The current version is SPM12, released 1st October 2014 and last updated 13th January 2020. This provides a major update to the SPM software, containing substantial theoretical, algorithmic, structural and interface enhancements over previous versions.
We still provide access to previous versions of SPM, but recommend you use the current version wherever possible.
