Rebecca Saxe, MIT

Elaboration on the classification step in fMRI analysis, in which the particular stimulus condition(s) present in a given experimental trial are learned from the observed fMRI responses of a set of voxels, enabling prediction of the stimulus condition from new data. Examples are drawn from a study by Rebecca Saxe and Amy Skerry on neural representations of emotion.
