7.2.17. nilearn.datasets.fetch_localizer_contrasts

nilearn.datasets.fetch_localizer_contrasts(contrasts, n_subjects=None, get_tmaps=False, get_masks=False, get_anats=False, data_dir=None, url=None, resume=True, verbose=1)

Download and load Brainomics Localizer dataset (94 subjects).

“The Functional Localizer is a simple and fast acquisition procedure based on a 5-minute functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) sequence that can be run as easily and as systematically as an anatomical scan. This protocol captures the cerebral bases of auditory and visual perception, motor actions, reading, language comprehension and mental calculation at an individual level. Individual functional maps are reliable and quite precise. The procedure is decribed in more detail on the Functional Localizer page.” (see http://brainomics.cea.fr/localizer/)

“Scientific results obtained using this dataset are described in Pinel et al., 2007” [1]

Parameters:

"vertical vs horizontal checkerboard",
"sentence listening",
"sentence reading",
"sentence listening and reading",

"auditory&visual motor vs cognitive processing"}

n_subjects: int or list, optional

The number or list of subjects to load. If None is given, all 94 subjects are used.

get_tmaps: boolean

Whether t maps should be fetched or not.

get_masks: boolean

Whether individual masks should be fetched or not.

get_anats: boolean

Whether individual structural images should be fetched or not.

data_dir: string, optional

Path of the data directory. Used to force data storage in a specified location.

url: string, optional

Override download URL. Used for test only (or if you setup a mirror of the data).

resume: bool

Whether to resume download of a partly-downloaded file.

verbose: int

Verbosity level (0 means no message).

Returns:

data: Bunch

Dictionary-like object, the interest attributes are :

  • ‘cmaps’: string list

    Paths to nifti contrast maps

  • ‘tmaps’ string list (if ‘get_tmaps’ set to True)

    Paths to nifti t maps

  • ‘masks’: string list

    Paths to nifti files corresponding to the subjects individual masks

  • ‘anats’: string

    Path to nifti files corresponding to the subjects structural images
