The techniques available for the interrogation and analysis of neuroimaging data have a large influence in determining the flexibility, sensitivity and scope of neuroimaging experiments. The development of such methodologies has allowed investigators to address scientific questions which could not previously be answered and, as such, has become an important research area in its own right.

In this paper, we present a review of the research carried out by the Analysis Group at the Oxford Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain (FMRIB). This research has focussed on the development of new methodologies for the analysis of both structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging data . The majority of the research laid out in this paper has been implemented as freely available software tools within FMRIB's Software Library (FSL).
