The neuromaps toolbox is designed to help researchers make easy, statistically-rigorous comparisons between brain maps (or brain annotations).

Installation requirements

Currently, neuromaps works with Python 3.7+ and requires a few dependencies:

  • matplotlib

  • nibabel (>=3.0)

  • nilearn (>=0.7)

  • numpy (>=1.14)

  • scikit-learn (>=0.17)

  • scipy

You can get started by installing neuromaps from the source repository with:

git clone
cd neuromaps
pip install .

You will also need to have Connectome Workbench installed and available on your path in order to use most of the transformation / resampling functionality of neuromaps.
