Goal and approaches

Goal and Approaches

Goal: Recover True Activation through Spatial Regularization

Our Approach:

  • Incorporate MRF into General Linear Model (GLM) Statistic

  • Include Anatomical Information into MRF


Detailed approaches

Detailed Approaches

Our Approach:

  • 1. Incorporate MRF into GLM Statistic

    • Capture spatial dependency

    • Overcome over-smoothing effect

  • 2. Include Anatomical Information into MRF

    • Activation is more likely in gray matter

    • Spatial dependency is strong within tissue type
