Multivoxel Pattern Analysis Using Information-Preserving EMD
This paper presents a quantitative analysis on fMRI data using the information-preserving mode decomposition. Multivoxel patterns in fMRI responses in a cognitive experiment were analyzed for spatial selectivity to color perceptions of neurons in the Lateral Geniculate Nucleus (LGN) and the primary visual cortex (V1). The performance of the new method is tested and evaluated in a case study and the results are compared with the previous findings on the same dataset. While conforming to the previous study, the new results have shown improved classification of patterns for unique hues in V1.
