Implementations of Causal Dynamic Network Analysis of fMRI

Project description

Causal Dynamic Network Modeling

cdn-fmri is a Python-based package implementing causal dynamic network analysis for Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). It aims to improve the dynamic causal modeling with the optimization based method. Our optimization-based method and algorithm compute efficiently the ODE parameters from fMRI data, instead of comparing potentially a huge number of candidate ODE models. For a detailed introduction of dynamic causal modeling, see (1).

Getting Started

This package supports both python 2.7 and python 3.6.

Example provided in the repo has been tested in mac os and Linux environment.

These instructions will get you a copy of the project up and running on your local machine for development and testing purposes.

This package is also published in pypi. For a quick installation, try

pip install cdn-fmri
