Research in the Information Concealment Paradigm: Assessment of fMRI-Data at the Group Level

18

Abstract

This work presents the results of studying the evaluation of fMRI data at the group level. Some factors influencing the formation of such estimates are shown. On the basis of experimental data obtained in forensic tests in the information concealment paradigm, attention is drawn to the need for a critical assessment of the results and methodology (design) of research, based on the results of which the outcome of the analysis of fMRI data at the group level are presented.
