The DFWG is charged with arriving at a technical solution to the problem of multiple data formats used in fMRI research. This was identified by many investigators as a fundamental obstacle to fMRI fulfilling the promise it has to elucidate brain function. The solution arrived at by the DFWG will not be imposed on the research community, but several groups that develop fMRI-related software have already indicated their willingness to adopt the solution. Suggestions for membership on the DFWG were broadly solicited from the research community.


The Current DFWG members are:

  • Chair: Stephen C. Strother (Rotman Institute-Baycrest Centre/University of Toronto)
  • John Ashburner (Functional Imaging Laboratory, London, United Kingdom)
  • Hester Breman (Brain Innovation B.V., Maastricht, The Netherlands)
  • Robert W. Cox (National Institute of Mental Health, NIH, DHHS, Bethesda, Maryland)
  • Kate Fissell (University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania)
  • Christian Haselgrove (Massachusetts General Hospital, Charlestown, Massachusetts)
  • Mark Jenkinson (Oxford University Centre for Functional MRI of the Brain, United Kingdom)
  • David Keator (University of California, Irvine)
  • Peter Kochunov (University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio, Texas)
  • Daniel Valentino (University of California, Los Angeles)
  • Bennet Vance (Dartmouth College, Hanover, New Hampshire)
  • Robert Vincent (Montreal Neurological Institute, Montreal, Canada)
  • ex officio: Michael F. Huerta (National Institute of Mental Health, NIH, DHHS)
  • ex officio: Yuan Liu (National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, NIH, DHHS)
