Cortical gradients and beyond

Project description AppVeyor branch PyPI - Python Version

BrainSpace is a lightweight cross-platform toolbox primarily intended for macroscale gradient mapping and analysis of neuroimaging and connectome level data. The current version of BrainSpace is available in Python and MATLAB, programming languages widely used by the neuroimaging and network neuroscience communities. The toolbox also contains several maps that allow for exploratory analysis of gradient correspondence with other brain-derived features, together with tools to generate spatial null models.

For installation instructions, examples and documentation of BrainSpace see our documentation.

Happy gradient analysis!
