Testing Multiclass Pattern Discrimination

  title={Testing Multiclass Pattern Discrimination},
  author={Emanuele Olivetti and Susanne Greiner and Paolo Avesani},

Machine learning is increasingly adopted in neuroimaging-based neuroscience studies. The paradigm of predicting the stimuli provided to the subject from the concurrent brain activity is known as "brain decoding" and accurate predictions support the hypothesis that the brain activity encodes those stimuli. When the stimulus categories are more than two it is not straightforward how to assess the amount of evidence in support of such an hypothesis. Moreover it is unclear how to distinguish… CONTINUE READING
