MCF: Module-constrained principal component analysis of brain connectivity
Given a set of connectivity (or weighted adjacency) matrices, modular connectivity factorization (MCF) (Hirayama et al., 2016) seeks to explain their variability by a small number of components where the corresponding basis or "eigenconnectivity" (Leonardi et al., 2013) patterns are explicitly constrained to have modular network structures. The method extends our previous orthogonal connectivity factorization (OCF) method (Hyvärinen, et al., 2016) so as to consider the variability in both inter- and intra-module connectivities and also to allow more than two modules.
The package also includes sample connectivity data.

LCMM: Unified source separation and clustering analysis for EEG/MEG
A Matlab implementation of the statistical method proposed in (Hirayama et al., 2014,2015) for unsupervised EEG/MEG analysis. The method performs unsupervised clustering of sources' joint activity (coactivity) and simultaneously the blind separation of sources. The two stages of analysis are unified into learning a single probabilistic model, called Latent Coactivity Mixture Model (LCMM). See the references below for more technical details.
This software requires minFunc and Signal Processing Toolbox.
