[scikit-learn] using a mask for brain images

I have a script to classify MRI perfusion maps from healthy subjects and
patients. For the file IO and the classifier I have started with the
example code in Abraham et al 2014 [https://arxiv.org/pdf/1412.3919.pdf].

I use the same classifier as in the paper to produce a back-projected map
of classification weights, which I then want to 'unmask' like in the paper:



    wmap=np.zeros(mask.shape, dtype=X.dtype)

But the line "wmap[mask]=coef" throws an error "ValueError: boolean index
array should have 1 dimension". I tried the example code from the paper and
that works.

Is the 'coef' array of back-projected SVM weights in some way different
than the masked input image? Or am I doing something else wrong? The error
suggests that the mask array is the problem.

The complete script is attached.

Many thanks for your help!
