A page to store links to documentation for common bits of software, and take notes on steps that overlap. I think that, by and large, the majority of neuroscience problems fall into three categories: image manipulation, quantifying behavioral observations, manipulating physiological observations, and stimulus presentation.
These utilities ultimately should amount to specialized versions of Photoshop/the GIMP that operate in 3D space rather than 2D. Some of them include some statistical processing tools as well. Essentially these then become hybridized versions of Photoshop and R/Stata/SPSS/SAS.

- MNI Tools
As per earlier statements, compare these manuals to:
Other Image Processing Libraries
Quantifying Behavioral Data
Manipulating Physiological Data
- Bioread (for BIOPAC)
Stimulus presentation packages, by their very nature, also quantify behavioral data into reaction times and specific responses.
