The UCLA FUNC (FUnctional Neuroimaging Core) is a Computing Cluster dedicated to analysis and storage of neuroimaging data. FUNC is located on the 2nd floor of Franz Hall behind the undergrad computing lounge.
Getting an Account
To get an account you should contact Mark Strohm making sure you include your affiliation and the lab/group you are in, and cc-ing your mentor/supervisor. (Note that accounts on the FUNC are currently restricted to UCLA personnel and collaborators.)
Accessing the Cluster
How to get on the FUNC (once you have a username/password).
Logging in Remotely
If you want to access the FUNc from outside the UCLa network you will likely have to install and use the BOL Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Getting data on the FUNC
How to use MATLAB on the cluster. It is easier than you think. (Well, maybe...)
NeuroImaging (MR) Analysis Software Packages
Statistical Parametric Mapping
A collection of helpful GUI and programs for functional and structural MR analysis.
FSL is a comprehensive library of analysis tools for FMRI, MRI and DTI brain imaging data.
Full List of Software
Here you can find a list on what software is available on the FUNC (and sometimes some details on usage).
How about streamlining some of those tasks, or getting more things done.
Scripts and pipelines available on the FUNC
Working in a UNIX Environment
Never heard of a command line before? Vaguely know what "permissions" are and have no idea how to navigate a filesystem? This page is meant to take the scare out of the words "command line" so you can actually use Hoffman2, because no matter how many GUIs there are, command line is king.
