Curry 7 – Module Overview


Curry integrates multiple complementary imaging modalities such as EEG, ECoG, MEG, MRI, fMRI, CT. By combining the latest techniques for determining electrical activity in the brain with anatomical and functional imaging, Curry provides a powerful new method for accurately localizing the source of such activity. Curry uses the full physical anatomy from MR and CT to provide three-dimensional models of the head and brain, pinpointing the site of activity. Curry integrates fMRI functional imaging with EEG and MEG source analysis. Curry can be used on PCs and laptops running Windows XP or later. It is aimed at functional mapping and diagnosis of brain activity. However, the functionality offered and the evolutionary nature of Curry also make it suitable for wider application.

Curry has a modular design. The more modules you purchase, the more functionality you will have available. The modules are:

  • X: Data Acquisition
  • S: Signal Processing
  • B: Basic Analysis
  • R: Advanced Analysis (Research)
  • A: Advanced Analysis (Complete)

Missing modules can be purchased and activated later. The data acquisition module X can be combined with each of the packages that has the signal processing module S (i.e. XS, XSB, XSBA).

For all packages a standalone version or network license is available. A NETWORK license allows multiple computers to access a single license dongle and use any available Curry Neuroimaging Suite module. A license dongle with all features can be shared over a local area network (LAN) and could then allow one computer to acquire data, another to conduct signal processing and a third to process structural data.
