MRI provides the capability of obtaining different information from various aspects of the brain. More comprehensive understanding of the brain can be achieved by combining multimodal brain imaging data. Using Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) in addition to resting state fMRI (rs-fMRI), we have proposed a novel multivariate fusion approach to find supportive structural basis of brain functional networks. Two known functional networks and their counterpart structural networks were extracted through this method.
