About the Speaker:

Professor Jack Lancaster

Jack Lancaster is a Professor and Chief of the Biomedical Image Analysis Division (BIAD) at the Research Imaging Institute, at the University of Texas Health Sciences Centre at San Antonio. He is an expert in spatial normalization techniques and developed the coordinate conversion algorithm, icbm2tal (Lancaster transform), to accurately compare Talairach and MNI coordinates archived in BrainMap. He is founding co-editor of Human Brain Mapping.

 Professor Peter Fox

Peter Fox is the founding director of the Research Imaging Institute, at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. He helped develop the Talairach Daemon, a commonly used template for brain normalization. He initiated the BrainMap database which stores results from functional and structural human neuroimaging studies for coordinate-based meta-analysis, and has overseen the development of Scribe, Sleuth, and GingerALE, a pipeline of freely available software for coding, searching, and meta-analyzing the BrainMap Database. He is founding co-editor of Human Brain Mapping, and a past-president of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping (2004-2005).
