Welcome to mpi.is-brain-connectivity-plugin’s documentation!


This package contains a set of python tools for assisting in the visualization of brain connectivity information. The package contains:

  • a Paraview filter, that is a parametrizable plugin running in a Paraview visualization pipeline. This plugin shows the connectivity of the brain sites, in a raw or summarized fashion,
  • utility functions for converting files and performing off-line computation on the brain connectivity


This package was developed by Lennart Bramlage and Raffi Enficiaud at the Software Workshop Central Scientific Facility of the Max Planck Institute for Intelligent Systems, in Tübingen, Germany. The details of the computations are given in the following report:


The installation procedures are described on the page Installation.
