Independent component analysis (ICA) has become an increasingly utilized approach for analyzing brain imaging data. In contrast to the widely used general linear model (GLM) that requires the user to parameterize the data (e.g. the brain's response to stimuli), ICA, by relying upon a general assumption of independence, allows the user to be agnostic(More)
Spatial independent component analysis (ICA) applied to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data identifies functionally connected networks by estimating spatially independent patterns from their linearly mixed fMRI signals. Several multi-subject ICA approaches estimating subject-specific time courses (TCs) and spatial maps (SMs) have been(More)
Multivariate analysis methods such as independent component analysis (ICA) have been applied to the analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data to study brain function. Because of the high dimensionality and high noise level of the fMRI data, order selection, i.e., estimation of the number of informative components, is critical to reduce(More)
In this paper, we introduce a simple and effective scheme to achieve joint blind source separation (BSS) of multiple datasets using multiset canonical correlation analysis (M-CCA) [J. R. Kettenring, "Canonical analysis of several sets of variables", <i>Biometrika</i>, vol. 58, pp. 433-451, 1971]. We first propose a generative model of joint BSS based on the(More)
The generalized Gaussian distribution (GGD) provides a flexible and suitable tool for data modeling and simulation, however the characterization of the complex-valued GGD, in particular generation of samples from a complex GGD have not been well defined in the literature. In this study, we provide a thorough presentation of the complex-valued GGD by i)(More)
In this paper, we consider the joint blind source separation (JBSS) problem and introduce a number of algorithms to solve the JBSS problem using the independent vector analysis (IVA) framework. Source separation of multiple datasets simultaneously is possible when the sources within each and every dataset are independent of one another and each source is(More)
Independent component analysis (ICA) is a popular blind source separation technique that has proven to be promising for the analysis of functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. A number of ICA approaches have been used for fMRI data analysis, and even more ICA algorithms exist; however, the impact of using different algorithms on the results is(More)
