Inferring functional connectivity using spatial modulation measures of fMRI signals within brain regions of interest

Bernard Ng, Rafeef Abugharbieh, Martin J. McKeown
2008 2008 5th IEEE International Symposium on Biomedical Imaging: From Nano to Macro  
We propose inferring functional connectivity between brain regions by examining the spatial modulation of the blood oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signals within brain regions of interest (ROIs).  ...  Thus, our results suggest that intensity is not the only coactivating feature in fMRI data. Instead, spatial modulations may also be used for inferring functional connectivity.  ...  In this paper, we propose characterizing the modulations in spatial variance of BOLD signals within different ROIs to infer functional connectivity between brain regions.  ...
