Resting-State fMRI Data Analysis Toolkit plus V1.22 (RESTplus V1.22)

 
 
     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 V1.22 (released 20190420)

Add BDA module. (Jia Xi-Ze)

 

New features of RESTplus V1.21 (released 20190205)

Add mean back modification (Wei Wei)

 

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.

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

New features of RESTplus V1.1 (released 20160122)

1. SPM12 Compatible (JIA Xi-Ze)

2. Added ASL toolbox for pcasl and 3D ASL (WANG Ze and JIA Xi-Ze)

3. Updated rp_spm_write_vol.m and rp_spm_read_vols.m from SPM5 to SPM12 (JIA Xi-Ze and LI Xun).

4. Spatial correlation of images in Imaging Calculator, supporting mask selection (JIA Xi-Ze; Thanks the report by JIAO Fang-Yang).

5. Added standardized effect size for t-tests (GAO Zhong-Zhan and JIA Xi-Ze)

6. Fixed a bug when subject ID of dicom header includes ‘-’ or ‘:’. ‘_’ and ‘:’ will be replaced by ‘_’. (JIA Xi-Ze; Thanks report of LIU Yan)
