FMRI

FMRI is the acronym given to the identification of brain activity in MR image data via a complicated mechanism of stimulated blood flow changes.

Configure the TINA system for by executing `tinatool -f fmri' from the UNIX command line or running tinatool1.sh. The `Stimulus' correlation function must be `plot'ed in the `imcalc graph' by pressing the appropriate button. Equivalent statistical measures to many used in the literature can be selected from the `Sequence' menu and used to `compare' the temporal data behaviour. An image of the degree of correlated response to the experimental stimulus will be displayed as an image in the imcalc Tv, which can be interpreted as a null hypothesis test of the original data being consistent with noise.
