Group inversion and MEG+EEG+fMRI multimodal integration

Rik Henson

(with much input from Karl Friston)

• A Generative Model of M/EEG

• Group inversion (optimising priors across subjects)

• Multimodal integration:

• 3.1 Symmetric integration (fusion) of MEG + EEG

• 3.2 Asymmetric integration of MEG + fMRI

• 3.3 Full fusion of MEG/EEG + fMRI?

## Overview

(Linear) Forward Model for MEG/EEG (for one timepoint):

Y = Data n sensors

J = Sources p>>n sources

L = Leadfieldsn sensors x p sources

E= Error n sensors

## 1. A PEB Framework for MEG/EEG(Generative Model)

(Gaussian) Likelihood:

C(e)= n x n Sensor (error) covariance

Prior:

C(j)= p x p Source (prior) covariance

1. A PEB Framework for MEG/EEG(Inversion)

1. Obtain Restricted Maximum Likelihood (ReML) estimates of the hyperparameters (λ) by maximising the variational “free energy” (F):

2. Obtain Maximum A Posteriori (MAP) estimates of parameters (sources, J):

cf. Tikhonov

…and an estimate of their posterior covariance (inverse precision):

(relevant to MEG+EEG integration)

3. Maximal F approximates Bayesian (log) “model evidence” for a model, m:

(relevant to MEG+fMRI integration)

1. A PEB Framework for MEG/EEG

Summary:

• Automatically “regularises” in principled fashion…

• …allows for multiple constraints (priors)…

• …to the extent that multiple (100’s) of sparse priors possible…

• …(or multiple error components or multiple fMRI priors)…

• …furnishes estimates of source precisions and model evidence

(note: common sources and source priors, but separate error components)

• Where data / leadfields scaled to have same average / predicted variance:

mi = Number of spatial modes

(fixed number of spatial+temporal modes)

• Fusing magnetometers, gradiometers and EEG increased the conditional precision of the source estimates relative to inverting any one modality alone

• (when equating number of spatial+temporal modes)

• The maximal sources recovered from fusion were a plausible combination of the ventral temporal sources recovered by MEG and the lateral temporal sources recovered by EEG

• (Simulations show the relative scaling of mags and grads agrees with empty-room data)

3.2 Fusion of MEG+fMRI (Conclusions)

• Adding a single, global fMRI prior increases model evidence

• Adding multiple valid priors increases model evidence further

• Helpful if some fMRI regions produce no MEG/EEG signal (or arise from neural activity at different times)

• Adding invalid priors rarely increases model evidence, particularly in conjunction with valid priors

• Can counteract superficial bias of, e.g, minimum-norm

• Affects variance but not not precise timecourse

• (Adding fMRI priors to MSP has less effect)

Overall Conclusions

• The PEB (in SPM8) framework is advantageous

• Group optimisation of MSPs can be advantageous

• Full fusion of MEG and EEG is advantageous

• Using fMRI as (spatial) priors on MEG is advantageous

• Unclear that fusion of fMRI and M/EEG is advantageous
