SPM Overview

What is SPM?

SPM (Statistical Parametric Mapping) is an fMRI analysis software package that is run in Matlab. In addition to fMRI analysis, SPM contains toolboxes for performing volume based morphometry and effective connectivity.


The following tutorials will show you how to analyze a sample dataset with SPM. You will begin by learning the fundamentals of fMRI preprocessing, and then proceed to create a model. We will finish by learning about different types of group analyses, and how to do region of interest (ROI) analyses.
