DATA MANAGEMENT

  • In order to help scripting (and your own sanity) it is a good idea to give files and directories systematic names.
    • For example:
    • Con0001 , Con0002, Con0003 , ... , Con0020, Pat0001, Pat0002, ... , Pat0020

  • Padding the numbers with zeros like this (Con0020 instead of Con20) helps keep the ordering consistent for scripting

  • In the UK (and other countries) you must not have identifiers (names, dates of birth, even initials) in the filenames

  • Consider renaming your original images to more meaningful (and consistent) names

  • Keep track of your disk usage and delete any analyses that were incorrect (many people have res.feat, res+.feat, res++.feat, res+++.feat , etc. which is confusing and a waste of space)
