**Validity of approach ^ ^ Gold Standard approach is EM – see later –**

estimates population mean effect as MEANEM the variance of this estimate as VAREM For N subjects, n scans per subject and equal within-subject variance we have VAREM = Var-between/N + Var-within/Nn In this case, the SS approach gives the same results, on average: Avg[a] = MEANEM Avg[Var(a)] =VAREM In other cases, with N~12, and typical ratios of between-subject to within-subject variance found in fMRI, the SS approach will give very similar results to EM. ^ ^

**The General Linear Model**

y = X + e N N L L N 1 Error covariance N 2 Basic Assumptions Identity Independence N We assume ‘sphericity’

10
**Multiple variance components**

y = X + e N N L L N 1 Error covariance N Errors can now have different variances and there can be correlations N We allow for ‘nonsphericity’

11
**Non-Sphericity Errors are independent but not identical**

Errors are not independent and not identical Error Covariance

12
**General Framework Multiple variance components Hierarchical Models**

at each level With hierarchical models we can define priors and make Bayesian inferences. If we know the variance components we can compute the distributions over the parameters at each level.

**Non-Sphericity Errors are independent but not identical**

Errors are not independent and not identical Error Covariance

17
**Non-Sphericity Error can be Independent but Non-Identical when…**

1) One parameter but from different groups e.g. patients and control groups 2) One parameter but design matrices differ across subjects e.g. subsequent memory effect

18
**Non-Sphericity Error can be Non-Independent and Non-Identical when…**

1) Several parameters per subject e.g. Repeated Measurement design 2) Conjunction over several parameters e.g. Common brain activity for different cognitive processes 3) Complete characterization of the hemodynamic response e.g. F-test combining HRF, temporal derivative and dispersion regressors

19
**Example I U. Noppeney et al.**

Stimuli: Auditory Presentation (SOA = 4 secs) of (i) words and (ii) words spoken backwards Subjects: (i) 12 control subjects (ii) 11 blind subjects jump touch koob “click” Scanning: fMRI, 250 scans per subject, block design Q. What are the regions that activate for real words relative to reverse words in both blind and control groups?

20
**Independent but Non-Identical Error**

1st Level Controls Blinds 2nd Level Controls and Blinds Conjunction between the 2 groups

21
**Example 2 U. Noppeney et al.**

Stimuli: Auditory Presentation (SOA = 4 secs) of words motion sound visual action jump touch “jump” “click” “pink” “turn” “click” Subjects: (i) 12 control subjects Scanning: fMRI, 250 scans per subject, block design Q. What regions are affected by the semantic content of the words ?

22
**= = = ? ? ? Non-Independent and Non-Identical Error**

23
**Example III U. Noppeney et al.**

Stimuli: (i) Sentences presented visually (ii) False fonts (symbols) Some of the sentences are syntactically primed Scanning: fMRI, 250 scans per subject, block design Q. Which brain regions of the “sentence reading system” are affected by Priming?

24

29
**Example 2:Univariate model**

Likelihood and Prior AIM: Make inferences based on posterior distribution Similar expressions exist for posterior distributions in multivariate models Posterior But how do we compute the variance components or ‘hyperparameters’ ?

31
**Estimating mean and variance**

Maximum Likelihood (ML), maximises p(Y|m,b) Expectation-Maximisation (EM), maximises for ‘vague’ prior on m

32
**Estimating mean and variance**

For a prior on m with prior mean 0 and prior precision a Expectation-Maximisation (EM) gives where Larger a more shrinkage

33
**Estimating mean and variance at multiple voxels**

For a prior on m over voxels with prior mean 0 and prior precision a Expectation-Maximisation (EM) gives at voxel i=1..V, scan n=1..N where Prior precision can be estimated from data. If mean activation over all voxels is 0 then these EM estimates are more accurate than ML

34
**The Interface PEB WLS Parameters Parameters, and REML Hyperparameters**

No Priors Shrinkage priors

35
**Bayesian Inference 1st level = within-voxel Likelihood Shrinkage Prior**

In the absence of evidence to the contrary parameters will shrink to zero 2nd level = between-voxels

36
**Bayesian Inference: Posterior Probability Maps**

PPMs Posterior Likelihood Prior SPMs

37
**SPMs and PPMs PPMs: Show activations of a given size**

SPMs: show voxels with non-zero activations

38
**PPMs Advantages Disadvantages Use of shrinkage One can infer a cause**

priors over voxels is computationally demanding Utility of Bayesian approach is yet to be established One can infer a cause DID NOT elicit a response SPMs conflate effect-size and effect-variability P-values don’t change with search volume For reasonable thresholds have intrinsically high specificity
