Description A goal of the University of Washington Brain Project is to develop software tools for processing, integrat-ing and visualizing multimodality language data ob-tained at the time of neurosurgery, both for surgical planning and for the study of language organization in the brain. Data from a single patient consist of four magnetic resonance-based image volumes, showing anatomy, veins, arteries and functional acti-vation (fMRI). The data also include the location, on the exposed cortical surface, of sites that were elec-trically stimulated for the presence of language. These five sources are mapped to a common MR-based neuroanatomical model, then visualized to gain a qualitative appreciation of their relationships, prior to quantitative analysis. These procedures are described and illustrated, with emphasis on the visu-alization of fMRI activation, which may be deep in the brain, with respect to surface-based stimulation sites.
