Brain Imaging and Image Analysis (I)

Full Text


In this work, we employ simultaneous EEG-fMRI data acquired during a visually-guided attention task along with convolutional sparse coding (CSC) analysis to extract transient events from the EEG. Subsequently, we use these events in a standard voxel-wise fMRI analysis and compare the resultant activation maps with maps obtained using the subjects’ response time (RT) in detection of visual target stimuli. We also employ FIR models to obtain HRF estimates using the detected CSC events. Our results show concordance between the resultant activation maps and consistent HRF shapes for most of the subjects, suggesting that CSC can be used as a tool for the detection of reliable events in the EEG.
