dear billy,
thank you for your kind reply.Please accept my apologies if the
question sounds silly but I am a medical student and newbie in the
field of research and this is my first project, I have searched hard
for this on the web but no luck.the original paper is: Rimol LM,
Hartberg CB, Nesvag R, et al. Cortical thickness and subcortical
volumes in schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. Biol Psychiatry
2010;68:41-50. it has done the analysis via SPSS which I know there is
no such correction option in SPSS.
yours,
Sadjad Riahi

Additionally, the correction methods used in neuroimaging analyses are likely to differ to some degree compared with those used in social sciences, since it is much less likely that someone in the social sciences would be working with several tens of thousands of dependent variables simultaneously.  Most software for neuroimaging analyses will have built in support for these corrections (at least Brain Voyager does).  It would be helpful to provide more explicit detail to the list if you would like any reasonable advice.
