The software is free, but we request that users register to download the software in order to help us track its usage.
Install the software by putting the ArtRepair software into the SPM Toolbox folder. ArtRepair is compatible with SPM12, SPM8, SPM5, and SPM2. Select ArtRepair within the SPM toolbox menu to start it. See ArtRepairInstallation.html for full details on installing the software.
This version of ArtRepair is NOT COMPATIBLE with 4d Nifti files.
Batch Script: A Matlab script for batch preprocessing of SPM and ArtRepair functions is available at the software download site. Please note that the script is not in the spm_jobman format, and it requires that the user be familiar with Matlab to use it.
Requirements: These programs assume that MATLAB and SPM are installed. The ArtRepair programs use the SPM read/write capabilities, and thus use AnalyzeFormat images with SPM2 and Nifti images with SPM5 and later. The programs have been tested in Matlab Versions 6.5 - 7.7 on RedHat Linux and Windows XP. More recently, the programs are run at our lab using Matlab R2013 and Mac OSX 10.8. The code is written using only basic Matlab functions to try to maximize platform compatibility.
