Multi-modal EEG and fMRI Source Estimation Using Sparse Constraints
In this paper a multi-modal approach is black presented and validated on real data to estimate the brain neuronal sources based on EEG and fMRI. Combining these two modalities can lead to source estimations with high spatio-temporal resolution. The joint method is based on the idea of linear model already presented in the literature where each of the data modalities are first modeled linearly based on the sources. Afterwards, they are integrated in a joint framework which also considers the sparsity of sources. The sources are then estimated with the proximal algorithm. The results are validated on real data and show the efficiency of the joint model compared to the uni-modal ones. We also provide a calibration solution for the system and demonstrate the effect of the parameter values for uni- and multi-modal estimations on 8 subjects.
