This paper presents the Computer Model of the System for Automatic Processing and Analysis of MRI/fMRI tomography data, obtained at the Kurchatov Institute Resource Center “Cognimed”. The System is based on the “Digital Lab” IT-Platform, involving the Kurchatov Institute Supercomputer Cluster HPC4, which allows speeding up the processing of data for groups (2–350 subjects) by parallelization of computations on the supercomputer nodes (1 subject – 1 node). The proposed System allows scientists to remotely use the installed on the supercomputer specialized software to process and analyze MRI/fMRI data; organizes a unified data storage; permits the work with data by web a interface. The System also enables the use of program modules developed by KI researchers which implement mathematical methods to improve data analysis results. As an example of the realization of this Computer Model, the Module “MRI FS” is presented that provides automatic processing and analysis of MRI data using the open specialized software FreeSurfer v.6.0.
