Tools for reading and visualizing CIFTI brain imaging files.

CIFTI files contain brain imaging data in “gray-ordinates”, which represent the gray matter as cortical surface vertices (left and right) and subcortical voxels (cerebellum, basal ganglia, and other deep gray matter).ciftiTools uses the Connectome Workbench to read CIFTI files into R and apply common pre-processing steps (e.g. smoothing, resampling). It also provides tools for visualizing the cortical surface with GIFTI files, and for visualizing the subcortical volume.


You can install the development version from GitHub with:
