Abstract : Brain parcellation into a number of hemodynamically homogeneous regions (parcels) is a challenging issue in fMRI analyses. This task has been recently integrated in the joint detection-estimation (JDE) resulting in the so-called joint detection-parcellation-estimation (JPDE) model. JPDE automatically estimates the parcels from the fMRI data but requires the desired number of parcels to be fixed. This is potentially critical in that the chosen number of parcels may influence detection-estimation performance. In this paper, we propose a model selection procedure to automatically fix the number of parcels from the data. The selection procedure relies on the calculation of the free energy corresponding to each concurrent model, within the variational expectation maximization framework. Experiments on synthetic and real fMRI data demonstrate the ability of the proposed procedure to select an adequate number of parcels.
