Dear rest-fmri team,
I am wondering if it is possible with REST to correct my functional mri data first against noise-prone regions before I calculate the correlation map in the "functional connectivity" setup.
Such noise prone regions are for example white matter, ventricular time courses and the cerebrospinal fluid.
So I would like to to something like:
whereas Y is the measured data, X the design matrix (containing all the noise prone region time courses as regressors), and b the estimated parameter.
As far as I could see in the REST code, Y contains just the standard-preprocessed (SPM) data, whereas X contains just the whole global signal of the brain.
So my question is if it is necessary to do additional coding being able to achieve this or if REST already can provide a functionality for this (that I did not realize).
Besides the REST toolbox is a great piece of work,
any help greatly appreciated!
