Papers to Appear

Cover image: This figure on the front cover is taken from Figure 2 in the article authored by Ben Wu, Subhadip Pal, Jian Kang, and Ying Guo, and entitled "Distributional independent component analysis for diverse Neuroimaging modalities." It shows resting-state brain functional networks identified by Distributional Independent Component Analysis (DICA) using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data from a subject in the Philadelphia Neurodevelopmental Cohort (PNC) study. DICA represents a paradigm shift to the traditional ICA by performing ICA on the distribution level rather than on the observed data. Compared to traditional ICA, DICA represents a fundamentally new approach that separates the parameters in the distribution function of the observed imaging data as a mixture of independent source signals. DICA is able to 1) provide a universal platform for decomposing diverse neuroimaging modalities with different scales and representations, 2) separate both linear and non-linear mixtures, and 3) generate more reliable findings. The latent components discovered by DICA (as shown in the figure) are highly reproducible and consistent across subjects.
