STNeuroNet is 3-dimensional convolutional neural network (CNN) for segmenting "active" neurons from calcium imaging data. The network was implemented through NiftyNet, a TensorFlow-based open-source CNN platform. You can adapt the existing network to your imaging data.
- Pre- and post-processing steps for segmenting active neurons
- A 3D CNN for batch-processing of calcium imaging data
- MATLAB GUI for manual marking of calcium imaging data
- Anaconda with Python 3.5
- MATLAB 2017b and MATLAB Runtime version 9.3
- Tensorflow-gpu 1.4 (CUDA Toolkit 8.0 and cuDNN v7.0 required. Detailed instructions can be found here.)
- NiftyNet version 0.2.0.post1
The how-to guides are available on the Wiki.
