Is fMRI “noise” really noise? Resting state nuisance regressors remove variance with network structure

Article English OPEN
Bright, Molly G.; Murphy, Kevin;

Noise correction is a critical step towards accurate mapping of resting state BOLD fMRI connectivity. Noise sources related to head motion or physiology are typically modelled by nuisance regressors, and a generalised linear model is applied to regress out the associate... View more
