fMRI retinotopic mapping provides detailed information about the correspondence between the visual field and its cortical representation in the individual subject. Besides providing for the possibility to unambiguously localize functional imaging data with respect to the functional architecture of the visual system, it is a powerful tool for the investigation of retinotopic properties of visual areas in the healthy and impaired brain. fMRI retinotopic mapping differs conceptually from a more traditional volume-based, block-type or event related analysis, both, in terms of the surface-based analysis of the data and the phase-encoded paradigm. Several methodological works related to fMRI retinotopic mapping have been published.

BALC is one of them, a software suite for the complete processing chain of retinotopic mapping starting from raw data up to the automatic delineation of low order visual areas.
