Fmridenoise (check if you are using AROMA pipelines)


I have been trying to run fmridenoise with no success. I have run into multiple problems, but this one is the latest I haven’t been able to solve. I am running the following command:
fmridenoise compare -sub sub-01 -ses ses-01 -p pipeline-24HMP_8Phys_SpikeReg -w /path_to_BIDS_folder

And I get the following error:
210218-16:43:51,699 nipype.workflow WARNING:

Does anyone know possible fixes or why this could be happening?

Hi, @AnaTomomi!

Did you manage to figure out what’s the problem or find a workaround?

I’m getting a very similar error message.


Hello @alado

Unfortunately no :frowning: I ended up writing my own scripts to compare because debugging was taking too long.
