Pierrick Coupé (LaBRI - University of Bordeaux, CNRS, France) - a member of the CPU cluster - and José V. Manjón (IBIME - UPV, Spain) have developed volBrain : a new, free online system able to automatically analyze MRI data from the brain. The system enables scientists worldwide to obtain key cerebral information in order to advance in research on neural pathologies. It provides information on the tissue volume in the intracranial cavity, as well as the cerebral hemispheres, the cerebellum and the brain stem.
