Pyneal -- real-time fMRI Analysis Software
Pyneal is an open source software package to support real-time functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). It is entirely Python-based and depends exclusively on free, open source neuroimaging libraries.
It allows users to:
- access functional MRI data in real-time
- compute on-going analyses throughout a scan
- monitor data quality
- share analysis results with remote devices (e.g. send results to an experimental task presenting neurofeedback to participants)
It currently supports data formats used across 3 major MRI manufacturers: GE, Siemens, Philips.
In addition to allowing users to compute basic, ROI-based analyses during a scan, Pyneal also provides a simple framework for designing and writing customized analyses that can be computed across the whole brain volume at each timepoint.
Please see Pyneal Docs for full documentation of this package, including:
- Customizing analyses
- Simulating fMRI environments for testing
