Identifying fMRI Model Violations with Lagrange Multiplier Tests (Ben Cassidy)
This software comprises tools for identifying model violation in Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging analysis. The diagnostic tests are available as a MATLAB toolbox, and can be run from the MATLAB command line or incorporated in batch scripts as part of a full fMRI analysis pipeline.
The current version includes tests for violation of the following model assumptions:
– Double Gamma (canonical) hemodynamic response function
– Double Gamma and temporal derivative HRF (derivative as defined in SPM software)
– Double Gamma and temporal derivative HRF (derivative as defined in FSL software)
– Time-varying HRF
– Non-linear HRF

Age-related hearing loss happens to most of us as we grow older. Over half of Australians aged 60 years and older experience some kind of hearing difficulty. Hearing loss can occur gradually as we age and despite affecting many aspects of daily life, is often unnoticed and undertreated. Research has shown that hearing loss with age is associated with faster […]
