The standard in fMRI is a magnitude-only statistical analysis of the data, despite evidence of task related change in the phase time-series. This study demonstrates the increased sensitivity and specificity of implementing complex-valued correlation models for low magnitude and phase contrast-to-noise ratio (CNR) values in fMRI data sets.
