Introduction to Neurohacking In R

  • Neurohacking describes how to use the R programming language ( and its associated package to perform manipulation, processing, and analysis of neuroimaging data. We focus on publicly-available structural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). We discuss concepts such as inhomogeneity correction, image registration, and image visualization.
    By the end of this course, you will be able to:
    • Read/write images of the brain in the NIfTI (Neuroimaging Informatics Technology Initiative) format
    • Visualize and explore these images
    • Perform inhomogeneity correction, brain extraction, and image registration (within a subject and to a template).

Imaging in R

  • Imaging in R is almost Neurohacking 2.0 (maybe 1.5), where the majority of the tutorials use ANTsR versus the fslr package that was the primary analysis package in Neurohacking 1.0.
