BSMac is a statistacal and graphical visualization for the analysis of fMRI data. It simultaneosly performs whole-brain activation
analyses at the voxel and region of interest (ROI) levels as well as funtional connectivity (FC) analysese using a flexible Baysiena
If you are using this software, please refer and cite the following two papers. Thanks.

Now, the BSMac MATLAB source code is available for download under GNU general public license.
BSMac is written in MATLAB, but it can run with or without MATLAB. There is BSMac Standalong version availabe for download also. If you are running BSMac from a machine
that has MATLAB installed, simply launch the application as described in the help manual.
If you wish to run the application from a machine that does not have MATLAB installed, then the
MATLAB Compiler Runtime (MCR) Redistribution package needs to be installed before launching BSMac.
We provide a link to download MCR.
BSMac Standalone is a small self-extraction program, around 2MB in size, including image templates, such as: AAL, Brodmann,
and MNl152 standard template (All are in MNI (Montreal Neurological Institute) space, i.e. image size is 91*109*91).
Once you download the software, you can simply extract it to your computer. BSMac will automatically create folders
to save the necessary information for running BSMac.
Although you can copy BSMac to multiple users,
we recommend that you register all the users. Once registered,
you will be included on our user list, and we will notify you regarding major upgrades, modifications, and bugs.
