Summary of "Double-wavelet transform for multi-subject task-induced functional magnetic resonance imaging data."

The goal of this article is to model multi-subject task-induced fMRI response among predefined regions of interest (ROIs) of the human brain. Conventional approaches to fMRI analysis only take into account temporal correlations, but do not rigorously model the underlying spatial correlation due to the complexity of estimating and inverting the high dimensional spatio-temporal covariance matrix. Other spatio-temporal model approaches estimate the covariance matrix with the assumption of stationary time series, which is not always feasible. To address these limitations, we propose a double-wavelet approach for modeling the spatio-temporal brain process. Working with wavelet coefficients simplifies temporal and spatial covariance structure because under regularity conditions, wavelet coefficients are approximately uncorrelated. Different wavelet functions were used to capture different correlation structures in the spatio-temporal model. The main advantages of the wavelet approach are that it is scalable and that it deals with non-stationarity in brain signals. Simulation studies showed that our method could reduce false positive and false negative rates by taking into account spatial and temporal correlations simultaneously. We also applied our method to fMRI data to study activation in pre-specified ROIs in the prefontal cortex. Data analysis showed that the result using the double-wavelet approach was more consistent than the conventional approach when sample size decreased. This article is protected by copyright.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Signal and data processing method that uses decomposition of wavelets to approximate, estimate, or compress signals with finite time and frequency domains. It represents a signal or data in terms of a fast decaying wavelet series from the original prototype wavelet, called the mother wavelet. This mathematical algorithm has been adopted widely in biomedical disciplines for data and signal processing in noise removal and audio/image compression (e.g., EEG and MRI).

The observation and analysis of movements in a task with an emphasis on the amount of time required to perform the task.

The functional superiority and preferential use of one eye over the other. The term is usually applied to superiority in sighting (VISUAL PERCEPTION) or motor task but not difference in VISUAL ACUITY or dysfunction of one of the eyes. Ocular dominance can be modified by visual input and NEUROTROPHIC FACTORS.

An assessment of HEALTH STATUS requested by third parties (e.g. insurers, adjudicating bodies, law enforcement, attorneys, etc) on a subject’s functional ability. Such information may be used in optimizing treatment or making informed decisions on compensation.
