rsHRF: A Toolbox for Resting State HRF Deconvolution and Connectivity Analysis (MATLAB)

Dependencies License



The current GitHub repository contains the MATLAB code for resting-state HRF estimation, deconvolution, visualization, and connectivity analysis, both for 1) the MATLAB Standalone as well as 2) the SPM plugin


For information concerning 1) the Python Standalone, along with 2) the BIDS-App through Dockers/brainlife, head over to
