BACKGROUND Canonical polyadic decomposition (CPD) may face a local optimal problem when analyzing multi-subject fMRI data with inter-subject variability. Beckmann and Smith proposed a tensor PICA approach that incorporated an independence constraint to the spatial modality by combining CPD with ICA, and alleviated the problem of inter-subject spatial map(More)
Electroencephalography (EEG) is one fundamental tool for functional brain imaging. EEG signals tend to be represented by a vector or a matrix to facilitate data processing and analysis with generally understood methodologies like time-series analysis, spectral analysis and matrix decomposition. Indeed, EEG signals are often naturally born with more than two(More)
Tensor decomposition of fMRI data has gradually drawn attention since it can explore the multi-way data's structure which exists inherently in brain imaging. For multi-subject fMRI data analysis, time shifts occur inevitably among different participants, therefore, shift-invariant tensor decomposition should be used. This method allows for arbitrary shifts(More)
BACKGROUND ICA of complex-valued fMRI data is challenging because of the ambiguous and noisy nature of the phase. A typical solution is to remove noisy regions from fMRI data prior to ICA. However, it may be more optimal to carry out ICA of full complex-valued fMRI data, since any filtering or voxel-based processing may disrupt information that can be(More)
Independent vector analysis (IVA) has exhibited great potential for the group analysis of magnitude-only fMRI data, but has rarely been applied to native complex-valued fMRI data. We propose an adaptive fixed-point IVA algorithm by taking into account the extremely noisy nature, large variability of the source component vector (SCV) distribution, and(More)
BACKGROUND Complex-valued fMRI data can provide additional insights beyond magnitude-only data. However, independent vector analysis (IVA), which has exhibited great potential for group analysis of magnitude-only fMRI data, has rarely been applied to complex-valued fMRI data. The main challenges in this application include the extremely noisy nature and(More)
Magnitude-only resting-state fMRI data have been largely investigated via independent component analysis (ICA) for exacting spatial maps (SMs) and time courses. However, the native complex-valued fMRI data have rarely been studied. Motivated by the significant improvements achieved by ICA of complex-valued task fMRI data than magnitude-only task fMRI data,(More)
Independent vector analysis (IVA) has exhibited promising applications to complex-valued fMRI data, however model order effects on complex-valued IVA have not yet been studied. As such, we investigate model order effects on IVA using 16 task-based complex-valued fMRI data sets. A noncircular fixed-point complex-valued IVA (non-FIVA) algorithm was utilized.(More)
