Noise reduction from MEG data

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperpeer-review


A method that reduces sensor noise and artifacts from MEG data is proposed. Factor analysis and Kalman filter are employed for sensor noise reduction. Factor analysis estimates noise covariances for Kalman filter. After the sensor noise reduction, Independent Component Analysis (ICA) is used to eliminate artifacts. Simulation studies confirmed that the signal-to-noise ratio of estimated independent component increases.
