Title: Optimal experimental designs for ultra-fast brain imaging studies
Authors: MingHung Kao - Arizona State University (United States) [presenting]
Abstract: Neuroimaging technologies such as functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and functional near-infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) have been widely used in various fields, including economics, neuroscience, political science and psychology, for studying the inner working of the human brain. Recent advances in these technologies allow researchers to collect neuroimaging data with improved temporal resolutions. However, obtaining optimal designs for such ultra-fast imaging studies is computationally very difficult, if not infeasible. We propose a computational method that makes it possible to efficiently obtain optimal experimental designs for collecting highly informative data from ultra-fast neuroimaging studies.
