NeuroPub - a Brain Visualisation Tool for iPad, iPhone and iPod touch

That is the name of my poster that will be presented at HBM 2010 (the 16th Annual Meeting of the Organization for Human Brain Mapping). The conference is in Barcelona this year, and it's only eight days left before the conference starts. My plan was to have the app released on the App Store in time for the conference, but I don't think it will get approved in time. It doesn't matter too much. It's more important that I have a great app that I can demonstrate on my iPad. I also need to prepare and print the poster, which I will present on Thursday June 10.

What is NeuroPub about? Statistical Parametric Maps for functional and structural images are often located in the same stereotaxic space - the ICBM152 space. This means results from different experiments can be visualised and compared on the same standard brain. The idea with NeuroPub is to create a tool which can be used as a library for all your statistical images - browse, search and visualise. With the advent of powerful mobile devices, such as the iPhone and the iPad, it's now possible to create this tool for iPhone OS - and store all your statistical images in your pocket! It will be a valuable tool whenever you want to discuss your results with other researchers, for instance at meetings such as the HBM conference.
