tedana: TE Dependent ANAlysis

The tedana package is part of the ME-ICA pipeline, performing TE-dependent analysis of multi-echo functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. TE-dependent analysis (tedana) is a Python module for denoising multi-echo functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data.

tedana originally came about as a part of the ME-ICA pipeline. The ME-ICA pipeline originally performed both pre-processing and TE-dependent analysis of multi-echo fMRI data; however, tedana now assumes that you’re working with data which has been previously preprocessed.

Alternatively, you can automatically compile relevant citations by running your tedana code with duecredit. For example, if you plan to run a script using tedana (in this case, tedana_script.py):

python -m duecredit tedana_script.py
