pymvpa2-prep-fmri - preprocess fMRI data for PyMVPA  


pymvpa2-prep-fmri [,OPTIONS/] ,<fmri-data>/  


Tiny tool to prepare a directory for a typical analysis of fMRI data with PyMVPA. Tools from the FSL suite will be used for preprocessing. It takes a 4D fMRI timeseries as input and performs the following steps:

- extract an example volume

- perform motion correction using the example volume as reference

- conservative skull-stripping and brain mask generation

- masking of the motion-corrected timeseries with the brain mask

All results will be stored either in the current directory, or in a subdirectory with the subject ID (if specified).
