Constrained Multi-objective Designs for Functional MRI Experiments via A Modified NSGA-II

Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) is an advanced technology for studying brain functions. Due to the complexity and high cost of fMRI experiments, high quality multi-objective (MO) fMRI designs are in great demand; they help to render precise statistical inference, and are keys to the success of fMRI experiments. Here, we propose an efficient approach for obtaining MO fMRI designs. In contrast to existing methods, the proposed approach does not require users to specify weights for the different objectives, and can easily handle constraints to fulfill customized requirements.
