ABSTRACT
We propose inferring functional connectivity between brain
regions by examining the spatial modulation of the blood
oxygen level dependent (BOLD) signals within brain regions
of interest (ROIs). This is motivated by our previous work,
where the spatial distribution of BOLD signals within an
ROI was found to be modulated by task. Applying replicator
dynamics to our proposed spatial feature time courses on
real functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data
detected task-related changes in the composition of the
