This study used independent component analysis (ICA) to detect blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) activity in cortico-striato-thalamo-cortical circuits. Which of the following describes this method of analysis?
BOLD activity correlated positively with tic severity in Tourette's syndrome patients in all of the following regions except:
When comparing activity in Tourette's syndrome patients during spontaneous tics and voluntary tics, significantly stronger activity was detected during spontaneous tics in which of the following regions?
