1 Dynamic Causal Modelling for ERP/ERFs Valentina Doria Georg Kaegi Methods for Dummies 19/03/2008

2 Classical ERP analysis Analyse averages over channels and select interesting peri- stimulus times condition 1 Difference between selected data Analysis of variance (Anova), over subjects Analysis of variance (Anova), over subjects Analysis at channel level. but not in brain space Analysis at channel level. but not in brain space time channels condition 2

3 Source reconstruction 0 1 R L Reconstruct brain sources which generated the observed channel data Analysis at source level, but typically no model about dynamics Selected data

4 New approach Develop mechanistic model for the full data, not only for selected or averaged part Use network model Explain differences in responses by change of a few interpretable parameters in generating network condition 1 condition 2

17 Data Specify generative forward model (with prior distributions on unknown parameters) Expectation-Maximization algorithm Iterative procedure: Compute model response using current set of parameters Compare model response with data Improve parameters, if possible DCM: The basic approach Output: Posterior distributions of parameters Make inferences on parameters

18 DCM specification DCM is specified by a graph of nodes (cortical areas) and edges (connections). Differences in 2 ERPs/ERFs are explained by coupling modulations, i.e., changes in connection strength. DCM doesn’t test all possible models. Is crucial to build a model biologically plausible! Different hypotheses Different models Bayesian model comparison identifies the best model/hypothesis within the universe of models/hypothesis considered.

25 Summary DCM models ERPs on the basis of a network of interacting cortical areas. Differences in waveforms are explained by coupling changes among these areas. The specification of the DCM (areas and connections in the network) is a critical point. It should be biologically plausible and motivated by specific hypotheses. DCM can be used to test different hypotheses or models of connectivity. STG A1 IFG
