In this paper, the effect of temporal autocorrelations in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data on sparse dictionary learning (SDL) is addressed. For sparse general linear model (sGLM), the fMRI time-series is modeled as a linear mixture of several signals such as neural dynamics, structured noise, random noise and unexplained signal variations on the basis of spatial sparseness. These signals are considered as underlying sources and SDL is used to estimate them. However, the sparse GLM model does not take into account the autocorrelations in fMRI data. To address this shortcoming, a new model is proposed to incorporate the prior knowledge about lag-1 autocorrelation into diction..
