Welcome to BAAD software


BAAD, “Brain Anatomical Analysis using Difeomorphic deformation”,  integrates several programs work on SPM software such as MarsBar, Wfu_Pickatlas, and XjView. BAAD works on Windows operating systems without Matlab installation, and makes it easy to handle VBM analysis across all gray matter and white matter regions of the brain. BAAD converts t-values to z-scores and displays z-scores of MNI anatomical ROIs, both in numerical spreadsheet form and in false-color graphical form.
