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
