Bug#598667: release-notes: [SQUEEZE] Please add news item about neuroimaging research support
Please consider the attached patch that mentions squeeze's unique
property of comprehensive support for neuroimaging research.
This patch might be extended into a larger section about the
achievements of the Debian Med and Science community. If that happens,
I'd volunteer to coordinate this effort and provide updated patches.
Thanks for your consideration,

+ mrtrix), stimulus delivery (e.g.
+ psychopy), MRI sequence development (e.g.
+ odin), as well as a number of
