Nilearn is a Python package included utilities for machine learning for neuroimaging.

The tool for download and documentation is available from:

It is developed from:

The package is also available from PyPI.

The package contains a range of submodules for data sets downloading, "decoding", matrix decomposition, image manipulations, loading, masking, mass-univariate analysis, neuroimaging visualization and time series analysis.

The downloading module may download a range of data sets and human brain atlases, e.g.:

  1. Harvard-Oxford Atlas
  2. ICBM152
  3. Craddock 2011 Atlas from A whole brain fMRI atlas generated via spatially constrained spectral clustering
  4. From Correspondence of the brain's functional architecture during activation and rest and Behavioral interpretations of intrinsic connectivity networks

Among the contributors to Nilearn are Gaël Varoquaux, Alexandre Abraham and Loïc Estève.
