False positives in neuroimaging genetics using voxel-based morphometry data

Matt Silver, Giovanni Montana, Thomas E. Nichols
2011 NeuroImage  
As VBM data exhibit spatially-varying smoothness, we used both non-stationary and stationary cluster size tests in our analysis.  ...  Tests based on the size of spatially extended clusters of contiguous suprathreshold voxels are also widely used due to their typically increased statistical power.  ...  Acknowledgments Matt Silver is supported by a grant from the Wellcome Trust.  ...

Validating cluster size inference: random field and permutation methods

S Hayasaka
2003 NeuroImage  
Cluster size tests used in analyses of brain images can have more sensitivity compared to intensity based tests.  ...  The random field (RF) theory has been widely used in implementation of such tests, however the behavior of such tests is not well understood, especially when the RF assumptions are in doubt.  ...  The most widely used methods, however, are the ones based on the random field (RF) theory (Friston et al., 1994; Cao and Worsley, 2001) .  ...

Controlling the familywise error rate in functional neuroimaging: a comparative review

Thomas Nichols, Satoru Hayasaka
2003 Statistical Methods in Medical Research  
In particular we do not consider inference on size of contiguous suprathreshold regions or clusters.  ...  "Multiple comparisons" can allude to pairwise comparisons on a single model, where as in imaging a large collection of models is each subjected to a hypothesis test. 2 A FWE-corrected threshold is one  ...  Acknowledgments The authors would like to thank Keith Worsley for many valuable conversations on random field theory.  ...

The expected behaviour of random fields in high dimensions: contradictions in the results of Bansal and Peterson (2018) [article]

Samuel Joseph Davenport, Thomas E Nichols
2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
Bansal and Peterson (2018) found that in simple stationary Gaussian simulations Random Field Theory incorrectly estimates the number of clusters of a Gaussian field that lie above a threshold.  ...  Using reproducible code we demonstrate that in their simulations Random Field Theory correctly predicts the expected number of clusters and therefore that many of their results are invalid.  ...  Cluster size inference using Random Field Theory is based on the properties of null mean-zero homogeneous random fields thresholded at a given cluster defining threshold (CDT) to produce an excursion set  ...

Cluster failure: Why fMRI inferences for spatial extent have inflated false-positive rates

Anders Eklund, Thomas E. Nichols, Hans Knutsson
2016 Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America  
By comparison, the non-parametric permutation test, which is based on a small number of assumptions, is found to produce valid results for voxel as well as cluster wise inference.  ...  in particular, cluster size inference with a cluster defining threshold of p = 0.01 generates familywise error rates up to 60%.  ...  This study would not be possible without the recent data-sharing initiatives in the neuroimaging field.  ...
