fMRI Methods Wiki

This site is meant for ongoing discussion and editing of a set of minimally acceptable standards for the reporting of research studies using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI).


The goal of this site is to provide guidance to researchers, in order to ensure that fMRI papers contain adequate detail to assess the methods and understand the results. This project is part of the larger effort to create standards on Minimal Information for Biological and Biomedical Investigations, and is registered with that project as MIfMRI.


Anyone can view the standards pages on this site. Membership in the fMRI Methods Working Group provides the ability to contribute to the standards by editing and discussing pages on this system, and is open to any researcher with documented experience in fMRI research (e.g., published papers). If you are interested in joining the group, send an email to poldrack[at]; please include a copy of your CV.
