Resting-State fMRI Data Analysis Toolkit plus V1.2 (RESTplus V1.2)


RESTplus evolved from REST (Resting-State fMRI Data Analysis Toolkit). It is based on Matlab and SPM8. RESTplus includes four main modules, i.e., pipeline, statistical analysis, utilities and viewer.

     The pipeline (either fixed or flexible) module provides a very easy way for data processing. After arrangethe DICOM or NIFTI filesand click a few buttons to set parameters, the pipeline (or flexible) module will automatically calculate each processing step and give you all the processed data. The pipeline and flexible module can perform slice timing, realign, reorient, normalize, smooth, detrend, filter, nuisance covariates regression, Functional Connectivity (FC), Regional Homogeneity (ReHo), Amplitude of Low-Frequency Fluctuation (ALFF), fractional ALFF (fALFF), Granger causality, degree centrality, voxel-mirrored homotopic connectivity (VMHC), and percent amplitude of fluctuation (PerAF).

     You can also use RESTplus to perform statistical analysis, view your data, perform Monte Carlo simulation (similar to AlphaSim in AFNI), perform Gaussian random field theory multiple comparison correction like easythresh in FSL, calculate your images, regress out covariates, extract ROI time courses, reslice images, calculate intraclass correlation, perform quality assurance, normalize PET data, inverse data into original space, and sort DICOM files. RESTplus also includes ASL toolbox.

New features of RESTplus V1.2 (released 20160202)

1  AlphaSim. The so-called "bug" has been fixed (the edge effects within the mask)

2 A bug for "Nuisance covariates regression" has been fixed

   For RESTplus V1.0 and RESTplus V1.1, the nuisance covariates regression result was wrong when two or more subjects were included (in pipeline or flexible module). For RESTplus V1.2, the bug of indir_RegressOutCov.m has been fixed (line30,line40).  If you have had any regression results from RESTplus V1.0 or RESTplus V1.1, you have to re-analyze your data with RESTplus V1.2. Sorry for the inconvenience.

3 A bug for help panel of "3d ASL Normalization" has been fixed.

Dynamic brain connectome analysis toolbox


Dynamic brain connectome (DynamicBC) analysis toolbox is a Matlab toolbox to calculate Dynamic Functional Connectivity (d-FC) and Dynamic Effective Connectivity (d-EC). Sliding window analysis (Bivariate Pearson correlation and Granger causality) and time varying parameter regression method (Flexible Least Squares) are two dynamic analysis strategies for time-variant connectivity analysis in the DynamicBC. Granger causality density/strength (GCD/GCS) and functional connectivity density/strength (FCD/FCS) analysis would be performed in this toolbox. Add DynamicBC's directory to MATLAB's path and enter "DynamicBC" in the command window of MATLAB to enjoy it.

The latest release is DynamicBC1.2_20160415.  

Manual could also be downloaded here.

New features of REST V1.8 release 130615:
1. Fixed a bug in temporal correlation of two groups of images in Image Calculator. (Thanks for the report of ZHANG Han)

2. The midline of VMHC results were set to zero. (YAN Chao-Gan)
 

New features of REST V1.8 release 130303:
When calling Mingrui Xia's BrainNet Viewer (http://www.nitrc.org/projects/bnv/), the default surface template is changed to the smoothed version (BrainMesh_ICBM152_smoothed.nv). The previous default template (BrainMesh_ICBM152.nv) hide more information in the sulcus. If the users want to use BrainMesh_ICBM152.nv as default surface template, please uncomment Line 3740 in rest_sliceviewer: %SurfFileName=[BrainNetViewerPath,filesep,'Data',filesep,'SurfTemplate',filesep,'BrainMesh_ICBM152.nv'];
(After discussion with Mingrui Xia).

New features of REST V1.8 release 130214:
1.    This release fixed some minor bugs, will not affect any data analysis.
2.    Fixed a bug when using .nii(.gz) files in REST Image Calculator. (WANG Xin-Di)
3.    Fixed a bug in using .nii(.gz) files in GCA analyses. (ZANG Zhen-Xiang)
4.    Fixed the imresize_old bug of REST Slice Viewer with Matlab 2012b. (YAN Chao-Gan)

New features of REST V1.8 release 121225:
1.    Support parallel computing! If you installed the MATLAB parallel computing toolbox, REST can distribute the subjects into different CPU cores. (WANG Xin-Di and YAN Chao-Gan).
2.    Algorithm change: (1) Filtering: a separate function for matrix filtering was written. The low cutoff frequency index calculation changed from round (in REST V1.7) to "ceil". E.g., if low cut off corresponded to index 5.1, now it will start from 6 other than 5. This change also applies to ALFF and fALFF calculation. The filtered data changes slightly, about 0.0001. (2) The ALFF generated by the new version is sqrt(2/N) times of the original version. (new version used: 2*abs(fft(x))/N; original version used:  sqrt(2*abs(fft(x))^2/N)). This change will not affect group analysis (as each individual scaled the same number), and will not affect mALFF and fALFF calculation as this factor will be normalized. (3) In the calculation of ReHo, the rank will keep as double and no longer converted into uint16, thus created slight difference with REST V1.7. (YAN Chao-Gan)
3.    REST Slice Viewer support 4D file display and the maximum and minimum value could be set. (WANG Xin-Di)
4.    Gaussian random field (GRF) theory multiple comparison correction (like easythresh in FSL) was supported. The smoothness could be evaluated for GRF correction or AlphaSim correction. (GUI by WANG Xin-Di, algorithm by YAN Chao-Gan)
5.    Modules of voxel-mirrored homotopic connectivity (VMHC) (Zuo et al., 2010), Degree Centrality (Buckner et al., 2009) were added. (GUI by WANG Xin-Di, algorithm by YAN Chao-Gan)
6.    REST GCA: could handle multiple ROIs (other than 2) in ROI-wise GCA now. Fixed a bug of discordance between the outputs and the description in REST-GCA readme in the pre-release of REST V1.8. (ZANG Zhen-Xiang)
7.    rest_readfile.m and rest_writefile: The default format changed to .nii from .img. (WANG Xin-Di)
8.    rest_to4d.m: now support one 4d file other than a directory, also support a cell of image filenames. (YAN Chao-Gan)
9.    rest_regress_ss.m: add the output of T value. (YAN Chao-Gan)
10.    rest_Write4DNIfTI.m: This function was added for write 4D nifti files based on SPM’s nifti function. (YAN Chao-Gan)
11.    rest_writefile.m: No longer need to change to RPI before writing. (YAN Chao-Gan)

heatmap

 Can the authors provide representative fMRI raw data for both patient and control? Statistics and quantification are well done in the work, but some heatmap images of individual brain activities can make it more intuitive. 

双样本T检验的Alphasim校正

请教各位老师两个问题:

1.对双样本T检验进行Alphasim校正,是选用T检验的结果做为mask?还是选用什么文件作为mask?

2.在确定了cluster之后,在rest的Slice viewer中,输入的P值是输0.01还是输0.05?

谢谢各位老师赐教。

预处理的疑问以及功能连接校正方法

1,在1,在视频中,有关于去除头动较大的数据的问题,里面说的现在很多不在依据A标准(平动和转动大于多少mm)来作为排除标准,而是应用B标准(meanFD>0.2(Jenkinson))来作为排除标准,而我在实际预处理最后查看时发现用A标准排除的数据要比B标准排除的数据多,而且这个B标准我的理解是您说的Scrubbing这一步做的也就是您说的这一步一般在辅助材料里面写的。

关于功能连接的样本量选择问题以及统计的校正方法

老师,您好!最近在处理一批数据,因为看了2016年的最近的静息态数据处理的视频,尝试做了一下预处理以及功能连接数据的分析,遇到了一些问题:

单样本T检验的校正方法

想提高双样本T检验的阳性率,之前的单样本T检验使用什么校正方法合适呢?是采用较为严格的FDR(默认全脑mask)还是采用简单的P=0.05并按照AlphaSim定义体素?

关于fALFF的计算分析

老师,您好!我最近在做分频段的ALFF和fALFF分析,在计算fALFF时,我对一些参数的设置不确定。

比如我想做0.01-0.027频段的fALFF分析,我在Input Parameters里输入的是不是经过0.01-0.027Hz滤波后的文件(像做ALFF一样)?还是做完去线性漂移(detrend)后的文件?

注:Option:Ideal Band Pass Filter 这一栏之所以没设,是因为我已经做完了0.01—0.027 Hz的滤波。
