A Novel Criterion for Ranking the Robustness of EEG/MEG Sensor-Space Connectivity Estimators against Volume Conduction Artifact

Ali Khadem; Gholam Ali Hossein-Zadeh

Volume 8, Issue 1 , March 2014, Pages 1-17

  In EEG/MEG datasets, the Volume Conduction (VC) artifact appears as instantaneous linear mixing of brain source activities on the channel measurements. A desired characteristic of an ideal EEG/MEG connectivity estimator (on sensor-space) is its robustness to VC artifact. This means that the VC of independent ...  Read More

Two Stages Sparse Representation-based Classifier and its Application for Cancer Classification

Malihe Miri; Mohammad Taghi Sadeghi; Vahid Abootalebi

Volume 8, Issue 1 , March 2014, Pages 45-56

  Successful outcomes of Sparse Representation-based Classifier (SRC) and Sparse Subspace Clustering (SSC) in many applications motivated us to combine these methods and propose a hierarchical classifier. The main idea behind the SRC and SSC algorithms is to represent a data using a sparse linear combination ...  Read More
