Freesurfer is a set of automated tools for reconstruction of the brain’s cortical surface from structural MRI data, and overlay of functional MRI data onto the reconstructed surface.

Required Modules

Serial

  • freesurfer

System Variables

  • HPC_FREESURFER_DIR and FREESURFER_HOME - installation directory


Additional Information

Starting with freesurfer/6.0.0 the software is available as a Singularity container. To run any executable use the 'launch_freesurfer' wrapper after loading the module.

E.g.

NOTE:

Freesurfer comes with Freeview software. Freeview is a completely separate software from Freesurfer and is used purely for data visualization. Freesurfer 6 includes Freeview 2.0.
