Package fslr details

Wrapper Functions for 'FSL' ('FMRIB' Software Library) from Functional MRI of the Brain ('FMRIB')

Wrapper functions that interface with 'FSL' , a powerful and commonly-used 'neuroimaging' software, using system commands. The goal is to be able to interface with 'FSL' completely in R, where you pass R objects of class 'nifti', implemented by package 'oro.nifti', and the function executes an 'FSL' command and returns an R object of class 'nifti' if desired.
