We suggest a new approach to estimate a brain network to model cognitive tasks and explore the node degree distribution of this network in anatomic regions. Functional Magnetic Resonance Images are used to estimate the relationship among the voxels. First, a local mesh is formed around each voxel in a predefined neighborhood system. Then, the edge weights of meshes, called Mesh Arc Descriptors (MAD) are estimated using a linear regression model. In order to estimate the optimal mesh size for voxels, the error term obtained during the estimation of Mesh Arc Descriptors are employed to optimize Akaike's Information Criterion. Finally, the brain network is constructed for each class by the estimated MAD. During experiments, we analyze how the degree of nodes varies across the anatomic brain regions for different cognitive states. Our results indicate that some anatomic regions make dense connections for all cognitive tasks whereas some of them have relatively sparse connections. This observation is consistent with the previously reported findings of anatomic regions. Although the degree distributions look similar for all classes, there are slight variations among classes. Therefore, the statistics of node degree distribution may be used to discriminate the anatomic regions related to cognitive tasks.


New dimension reduction technique for brain decoding
Afrasiyabi, Arman; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Biomedical Engineering (2015)
A new architecture for dimension reduction, analyzing and decoding the discriminative information, distributed in function Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data, is proposed. This architecture called Sparse Temporal Mesh Model (STMM) which consists of three phases with a visualization tool. In phase A, a univariate voxel selection method, based on the assumption that voxels are independent, is used to select the informative voxels among the whole brain voxels. For this purpose, one of feature selection met...

A Hierarchical representation and decoding of fMRI data by partitioning a brain network
Moğultay, Hazal; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay; Department of Computer Engineering (2017)
In this study, we propose a hierarchical network representation of human brain extracted from fMRI data. This representation consists of two levels. In the first level, we form a network among the voxels, smallest building block of fMRI data. In the second level, we define a set of supervoxels by partitioning the first level network into a set of subgraphs, which are assu med to represent homogeneous brain regions with respect to a predefined criteria. For this purpose, we develop a novel brain parcellation...
Estimating Brain Connectivity for Pattern Analysis
Onal, Itir; Aksan, Emre; Velioglu, Burak; Firat, Orhan; Ozay, Mete; GİLLAM, İLKE; Yarman Vural, Fatoş Tunay (2014-04-25)
In this study, the degree of connectivity for each voxel, which is the unit element of functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) data, with its neighboring voxels is estimated. The neighborhood system is defined by spatial connectivity metrics and a local mesh of variable size is formed around each voxel using spatial neighborhood. Then, the mesh arc weights, called Mesh Arc Descriptors (MAD), are used to represent each voxel rather than its own intensity value measured by functional Magnetic Resonance I...
Pattern search in pathogenic bacterial proteins for localization and secretory systems
Özcan, Orhan; Özcengiz, Gülay; Can, Tolga; Department of Biotechnology (2015)
Computational prediction of bacterial protein localization (BPL) is a very useful tool which provides clues about protein function. For pathogenic proteins in particular, detection of their subcellular location and their secretory pathways have great implications for vaccine and drug design. Cell surface and/or secreted proteins of microbes can also be used as biomarkers for sensor applications. At present, there are numerous BPL prediction algorithms and programs available, however, most of them give false...
