Dear Min Kim,
Great! Thanks for your interest. Probably the best way to ask for AA help is to try the email list, automati...@googlegroups.com
, which I've CC'd here—there is more of a chance that at least one person will be able to help.
For installing AA, you will need to:
1) Download the files (e.g., as a ZIP folder - there should be a link for this labeled "ZIP" on the automaticanalysis github page.)
2) Unzip the archive. It will probably be called "automaticanalysis-master" - it doesn't matter, but to keep things simple you may just want to rename it "automaticanalysis".
3) Add the automaticanalysis folder to your Matlab path. You can do this by changing your Matlab preferences, or by using the "addpath" function in Matlab: addpath('/path/to/automaticanalysis').
This is all that is required for installation. However, it does take some time to get used to, and by the end you will have to learn at least a basic level of Matlab scripting in order to have success. We are hoping that over the next 6-12 months there will be better documentation for all of this, which may also help you along the way.
PS As far as I know, most of the people using/developing AA are on Unix-related computer systems. It may be that there are some things that will require tweaking to work on Windows. Perhaps someone else can chime in and correct me if I am wrong?
> Hello. I'm a post-doc in the Herbew University. I've been using SPM8 and would like to run AA script for SPM. I've found the webpage that I can download the AA program (https://github.com/rhodricusack/automaticanalysis/wiki
) and I also found your email address there. However, the instruction for the installation is not enough for non-computer expert like me. Could you briefly explain me how to install the program on the window 7? Is there a special way to install a program that runs on Matlab? Should I need to download all the files on the webpage?
