Experimental Designs for Functional Brain Imaging with fMRI

Experimental Designs for Functional Brain Imaging with fMRI

Series: Statistics GIDP Colloquium
Location: Math 501
Presenter: Ming-Hung (Jason) Kao, School of Mathematical and Statistical Sciences, Arizona State University;

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) experiments are widely conducted in many fields for studying functions of the brain. One of the important first steps of such experiments is to select a good experimental design to allow for a valid and precise statistical inference. However, the identification and construction of high-quality fMRI designs can be quite challenging. In this talk, we introduce some methods for constructing good fMRI designs, and discuss the statistical optimality of these designs.

Refreshments will be served after the talk. All are welcome!
