Caret (software)

CARET (Computerized Anatomical Reconstruction Toolkit) is a software application for the structural and functional analysis of the cerebral and cerebellar cortex. CARET is developed in the Van Essen Laboratory in the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri.


CARET is a free, open-source application distributed in both binary and source formats under the GNU General Public License. CARET runs on FreeBSD, Linux, Mac OS X, and Microsoft Windows.

CARET's capabilities

  • Analysis of group anatomical differences using sulcal depth morphometry.
  • Display of activation foci.
  • Generation of flat, inflated, spherical surfaces.
  • Mapping of fMRI volumes onto surfaces.
  • Surface reconstruction from anatomical MRI volumes using the SureFit algorithm.
  • Surface reconstruction from contours.
  • Surface-based registration.
  • Visualization of contours, surfaces, and volumes.
  • Related Software

    SuMS Database and WebCaret provided on-line storage of surface and volume-based data along with web-based visualization of the data.
