[…] et al. () and with the streamline linear registration (slr) algorithm from garyfallidis et al. (). in all cases, affine registration was applied to streamline coordinates using the function dipy.tracking.streamline.apply_affine(), from dipy. non-linear voxel-level registration was computed with fsl/fnirt, using the deformation fields directly provided within the hcp dataset. gm-based […]

[…] was submitted for correction for participant movement and eddy current distortions through the fmrib software library (fsl) eddy tool. next, nonlocal means that de-noising was applied using the diffusion imaging in python (dipy) v0.11 package to boost signal-to-noise ratio. the diffusion tensor model was fitted to the pre-processed images to derive maps of fractional anisotropy (fa) using […]

[…] epi distortions. then, brain mask, region maps, and tpms were translated from the t2-weighted images to the preprocessed diffusion images. a diffusion tensor model was fitted to the images using dipy [], and fractional anisotropy (fa) was computed. tractography was performed using a deterministic algorithm based on constrained spherical deconvolution model, considering as seed points […]
