The Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC)

The Neuroimaging Informatics Tools and Resources Clearinghouse (NITRC) presents popular research tools as well as obscure but fortuitous finds.  NITRC offers the neuroscience research community not only a central repository of free databases and imaging applications, but a forum in which to investigate and compare them based on their peers’ assessments.  Users can monitor the development stages of potentially useful software, and submit their own databases and applications to be shared. Links to related resources are also provided here.  This is an award-winning site that can help you find the right functional or structural neuroimaging resource or utility for your particular research.  NITRC is funded by the National Institutes of Health Blueprint for Neuroscience Research.
