Abstract. Due to the complex noise structure of functional magnetic resonance
imaging (fMRI) data, methods that rely on information within a single subject
often results in unsatisfactory functional segmentation. We thus propose a new
graph-theoretic method, "Group Random Walker" (GRW), that integrates group
information in detecting single-subject activation. Specifically, we extend each
subject's neighborhood system in such a way that enables the states of both
intra- and inter-subject neighbors to be regularized without having to establish a
one-to-one voxel correspondence as required in standard fMRI group analysis.
