Hemodynamic Response Function (HRF) estimation in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) experiments is an important issue in functional neuroimages analysis. Indeed, when modeling each brain region as a stationary linear system characterized by its impulse response, the HRF describes the temporal dynamic of the brain region response during activations. Using the mixed-effects model, a new algorithm for maximum likelihood HRF estimation is derived. In this model, the random effect is used...[Show more]
