Abstract : BOLD functional MRI (fMRI) is now a widespread imaging technique to study task-related activity in the brain. However, getting the areas of activation at the individual subject level is still an open issue. The standard massively univariate statistical analysis is usually performed after smoothing the data and makes use of a single p-value for final thresholding of the results [1]. In group fMRI studies, the need for compensation of cross-subjects misregistrations clearly justifies the smoothing. However, at the individual level, where neat delineations of the activated areas are of interest, the use of gaussian smoothing as a pre-processing step is more questionable. In this paper, we propose to study the ability of an a contrario approach, recently adapted for basal perfusion abnormalities detection [2], to correctly detect areas of functional activity.
