Python Bindings for Neuroshare ============================== The Neuroshare API is a standardized interface to access electrophysiology data stored in various different file formats. To do so, it uses format- specific shared libraries. Refer to the official website http://neuroshare.org for more information. The aim of this library is to provide a high level interface to the Neuroshare API, i.e. it focuses on API usability more then being a mere python version of the C API. Thus none of the original Neuroshare API calls are directly exposed but the interface is through python objects that resemble (more or less) the Neuroshare Entities. Installation ------------ The compile-time requirements for python-neuroshare are the 'setuptools' and the Python development files and a working C compiler (clang or gcc) and NumPy. For Debian based distributions, e.g. Ubuntu, this can easily be done with: $ sudo apt-get install clang python-setuptools \ python-dev python-numpy After that, python-neuroshare is installed with the following command: $ sudo python setup.py install Additional runtime dependencies: * The Neuroshare vendor DLLs for the specific data file(s)! Please refer to the following section for more information. Installation of vendor DLLs - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Python-neuroshare relies on the vendor specific DLLs to access data failes. Therefore the specific DLLs for each type of file must be downloaded and installed into one of the following locations: /usr/local/lib/neuroshare /usr/lib/neuroshare ~/.neuroshare A (possibly incomplete) list of the vendor specific DLLs can be obtained be obtained from the neuroshare website: http://neuroshare.sourceforge.net/DLLLinks.shtml Please note that you need the corresponding DLLs for your platform (e.g. Linux, 64-bit). If you find yourself in the situation that there is no DLL for your specific platform and you are either on a UNIX-like system you can use G-Node's very one nswineproxy component to use the Windows 32 bit DLLs. Please refer to the nswineproxy homepage for more information: https://github.com/G-Node/nswineproxy Usage ----- Opening a file: >> import neuroshare as ns >> fd = ns.File ("NeuroshareExample.mcd") Iterate over the entities in the file: >> for entity in fd.list_entities(): >> print entity.label, entity.entity_type >> ... do something else with entity ...
