Jeng-Ren Duann

Jeng-Ren Duann

Research Interests

  • fMRI Basics
    Most current analysis methods for fMRI data assume a priori knowledge of the time course of the hemodynamic response (HR) to experimental stimuli or events in brain areas of interest. In addition, they typically assume homogeneity of both the HR and the non-HR "noise" signals, both across brain regions and across similar experimental events. When HRs vary unpredictably, from area to area or from trial to trial, an alternative approach is needed. Here, we use infomax Independent Component Analysis (ICA) to detect and visualize variations in single-trial HRs in event-related fMRI data.
