As advances in technology allow the acquisition of complementary information, it is increasingly common for scientific studies to collect multiple datasets. Large-scale neuroimaging studies often include multiple modalities (e.g., task functional MRI, resting-state fMRI, diffusion MRI, and/or structural MRI), with the aim to understand the relationships between datasets. In this study, we seek to understand whether regions of the brain activated in a working memory task relate to resting-state… 


A CCA+ICA based model for multi-task brain imaging data fusion and its application to schizophrenia
This paper proposes a simple yet effective model, "CCA+ICA", as a powerful tool for multi-task data fusion and fills a gap in existing multivariate methods for identifying biomarkers from brain imaging data.
A method for multitask fMRI data fusion applied to schizophrenia
The claim that examination of joint activation across multiple tasks can enable new questions to be posed about fMRI data is supported, and a method to extract maximally spatially independent maps for each task that are “coupled” together by a shared loading parameter is proposed.
Linked independent component analysis for multimodal data fusion
A novel "Linked ICA" model is developed for simultaneously modelling and discovering common features across multiple modalities, which can potentially have completely different units, signal- and contrast-to-noise ratios, voxel counts, spatial smoothnesses and intensity distributions.
A review of multivariate methods for multimodal fusion of brain imaging data
A number of multivariate methods appearing in previous multimodal fusion reports, mostly fMRI with other modality, which were performed with or without prior information are surveyed.
A three-way parallel ICA approach to analyze links among genetics, brain structure and brain function
Simulations and in-vivo results validate the three-way pICA algorithm presented here as a useful tool in biomedical data fusion applications.
Resting-state fMRI in the Human Connectome Project
The work behind, and rationale for, decisions taken regarding the rfMRI data acquisition protocol and pre-processing pipelines are outlined, and some initial results showing data quality and example functional connectivity analyses are presented.
A review of group ICA for fMRI data and ICA for joint inference of imaging, genetic, and ERP data
An overview of current approaches for utilizing ICA to make group inferences with a focus upon the group ICA approach implemented in the GIFT software and an overview of the use of I CA to combine or fuse multimodal data are provided.
An evaluation of independent component analyses with an application to resting-state fMRI.
A modification of the Hungarian (Kuhn-Munkres) algorithm to match ICs from multiple estimates is applied, thereby gaining novel insights into how brain networks vary in their sensitivity to initial values and ICA method.
Method for multimodal analysis of independent source differences in schizophrenia: Combining gray matter structural and auditory oddball functional data
A novel methodology to perform independent component analysis across image modalities, specifically, gray matter images and fMRI activation images as well as a joint histogram visualization technique is proposed.
Multisubject Independent Component Analysis of fMRI: A Decade of Intrinsic Networks, Default Mode, and Neurodiagnostic Discovery
A focused review of how group independent component analysis (ICA) has contributed to the study of intrinsic networks and some of the differences observed in the default mode and resting networks in the diseased brain are shown.
