Fusion of EEG and fMRI by Parallel Group ICA

Vince D. Calhoun, Tom Eichele

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Independent component analysis (ICA) is increasingly utilized as a tool for evaluating the hidden spatiotemporal structure contained within brain imaging data. This chapter first provides a brief overview of ICA and how ICA is applied to functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. It then discusses group ICA and the application of group ICA for data fusion, with an emphasis on the methods developed within our group. It also discusses, within a larger context, the many alternative approaches that are feasible and currently in use.
