The reproducibility of patterns from brain activation experiments has been examined only for suprathreshold spatially localized foci. Scatter plots comparing signal levels across all pairs of Talairach voxels for pairs of functional activation images provide an alternative approach for assessing reproducibility. Image-wide, signal-level reproducibility may be quantitatively summarized using pattern similarity measures such as the Pearson product-moment correlation, rho. Empirical population… CONTINUE READING
