Note : In this toolbox, several variants of classifiers including logistic regression(LR), ARD-SLR, L1-regurlarized SLR, L2-regularized LR and relevance vector machine are implemented. However
||: Please read this document at first to understand contents
of the toolbox.
||: Release note|
||: This document covers the mathematical background of the implemented algorithms (for binary classifiers).|
For the applications of this method to the
fMRI decoding studies, please see the following papers.
