Abstract Cortical surface functional magnetic resonance imaging (cs-fMRI) has recently grown in popularity versus traditional volumetric fMRI. In addition to offering better whole-brain visualization, dimension reduction, removal of extraneous tissue types, and improved alignment of cortical areas across subjects, it is also more compatible with common assumptions of Bayesian spatial models. However, as no spatial Bayesian model has been proposed for cs-fMRI data, most analyses continue to… 
Integrated nested Laplace approximation method for hierarchical Bayesian inference of spatial model with application to functional magnetic resonance imaging data
The Bayesian approach based on joint PPM leads to more precise results by controlling false positive rate and the posterior mean from INLA fairly agree with the posteriormean from VB, however VB underestimates posterior variance.
Fast Bayesian estimation of brain activation with cortical surface and subcortical fMRI data using EM
An exact Bayesian analysis method for the GLM is developed, employing an expectation-maximization (EM) algorithm to find maximum a posteriori (MAP) estimates of task-based regressors on cs-fMRI and subcortical fMRI data while using minimal computational resources.
Spatial 3D Matérn Priors for Fast Whole-Brain fMRI Analysis
A statistical inference framework for functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) analysis based on the class of Matern covariance functions is proposed and an accelerated stochastic gradient descent (SGD) optimization algorithm for empirical Bayes (EB) inference of the spatial hyperparameters is developed.
A spatial template independent component analysis model for subject-level brain network estimation and inference
Spatial template ICA (stICA) is proposed, which incorporates spatial process priors into tICA and produces estimates that are more accurate and reliable than benchmark approaches, and identifies larger and more reliable areas of engagement.
Template Independent Component Analysis: Targeted and Reliable Estimation of Subject-level Brain Networks Using Big Data Population Priors
This work formulate a hierarchical “template” ICA model where source signals—including known population brain networks and subject-specific signals—are represented as latent variables and finds that template ICA achieves substantially better performance than dual regression, achieving 75–250% higher intra-subject reliability.
A multisubject, multivoxel, multirun whole brain causal model with explicit parameters for regions is constructed, making feasible estimation for all regions simultaneously, thereby also facilitating inferences about association between effects in different regions.
A Method to Adjust a Prior Distribution in Bayesian Second-level fMRI Analysis
The results showed that the employment of the prior adjustment method resulted in improved performance of Bayesian second-level fMRI analysis.
A Novel Method to Use Coordinate Based Meta-Analysis to Determine a Prior Distribution for Voxelwise Bayesian Second-Level fMRI Analysis
Previous research showed that employing results from meta-analyses of relevant previous fMRI studies can improve the performance of voxelwise Bayesian second-level fMRI analysis. In this process,


Fast Bayesian whole-brain fMRI analysis with spatial 3D priors
Bayesian fMRI data analysis with sparse spatial basis function priors
A statistical framework to analyse brain functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data and concludes that SSBFs allow for spatial variations in signal smoothness, provide an increased sensitivity and are more computationally efficient than previously presented work.
Bayesian Spatiotemporal Inference in Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging
The aim of this article is to present hierarchical Bayesian approaches that allow one to simultaneously incorporate temporal and spatial dependencies between pixels directly in the model formulation.
Bayesian models for functional magnetic resonance imaging data analysis
A review of the most relevant models developed in recent years for fMRI data, starting from spatiotemporal models for f MRI data that detect task‐related activation patterns and addressing the very important problem of estimating brain connectivity.
Fully Bayesian spatio-temporal modeling of FMRI data
A fully Bayesian approach to modeling in functional magnetic resonance imaging (FMRI), incorporating spatio-temporal noise modeling and haemodynamic response function (HRF) modeling is presented, and a novel HRF model made up of half-cosines is proposed, which allows distinct combinations of parameters to represent characteristics of interest.

Meta-analysis of functional neuroimaging data using Bayesian nonparametric binary regression
Simulation studies and application to the emotion neuroimaging data indicate that the fully Bayesian nonparametric binary regression method proposed is superior to standard kernel-based methods.
Adaptive spatial smoothing of fMRI images
This paper introduces a novel approach towards spatially smooth fMRI data based on the use of nonstationaryspatial Gaussian Markov random randomness (Yue and Speckman,2009), which allows the amount of smooth-ing to vary across the brain depending on the spatial ex-tent of activation, but also enables researchers to study how the extent of activation changes over time.
