Re: Donating scripts for rotating bvecs after ecc

Attached is a version of eddy_correct that incorporates Martin's bvecs
correction code as an optional argument.  This way, the bvecs correction
occurs in one step at the same time as the eddy_current correction.  The
code works as normal if you don't specify a fourth argument (the bvecs
file).

As far as the difference it makes: the mean FA difference is 0.000316 for
the dataset I am currently working with.  From visual inspection of the V1
lines, it doesn't make any significant difference there either.  Perhaps, as
you say, it only matters for datasets with ALOT of subject head motion.  

Peace,

Matt.

Thanks very much Martin!   This is great - can we get feedback from  
anyone who has tested this and seen how much difference it makes?

Do people think that it is likely that datasets with large enough  
subject motion to benefit from this correction would also be the same  
datasets that are still problematic because of _within_ image  
distortions from head motion? Or are the "thresholds" for defining  
these cases at different levels?

Cheers, Steve.
