Independent Component Analysis (ICA) has been proven to produce compact representations of recurrent patterns in BOLD-fMRI imaging data. Most ICA implementations used in BOLD-fMRI, however, optimize for spatial sparse decompositions rather than independent decompositions. We describe a neural-network ICA framework that optimizes directly for sparsity and also allows for overcomplete basis representation.
