I’ve been reading about Nipype over the past couple of days, and am really interested in using it for my fMRI pre-processing and modeling. Do I not need to install programs such as FSL, SPM, ANTS since those functions and commands will already be there when I download Nipype? This is the impression I’m getting, but when reading over the guide it suggests installing those interfaces as well (https://miykael.github.io/nipype-beginner-s-guide/installation.html). Would I only want to download an interface in order to be able to view the images through the interface GUI, or is there some other reason for wanting to download interface(s)?
Thanks for the clarification.
