Abstract

Motivated by the problem of multi-subject functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data sets analysis using multiple-set canonical correlation analysis (mCCA), in this paper we propose a new variant of the principal component analysis (PCA) method, namely the adaptive block sparse PCA. It has the advantage to produce modified principal components with block sparse loadings. It is derived using penalized rank one matrix approximation where the penalty is introduced in the minimization problem to promote block sparsity of the loading vectors. An efficient algorithm is proposed for its computation. The effectiveness of the proposed method is illustrated on the problem of multi-subject fMRI ..
