How clean fMRI data with FIX-ICA

In resting-state fMRI processing we often apply Independent Component Analysis to clean the data from noise. Automated approaches for ICA-based cleaning can automatically label components as noise or signal, but often need to be trained on data-specific labels. This post explains how to train an automated ICA component classifier and use it to denoise fMRI data.

How to classify ICA components

Independent Component Analysis (ICA) can identify patterns in fMRI data. Some of the components reflect BOLD signal and others are driven by noise. This post explains how to identify signal components and noise components in your data.
