We propose a Bayesian hierarchical spatial model for multi-subject fMRI data. While there has been much work on univariate modeling of each voxel for single- and multi subject data, and some work on spatial modeling for single-subject data, there has been virtually no work on spatial models that explicitly account for inter-subject variability in activation location. Most previous models use Gaussian mixtures for the activation shape. At the first level, we use Gaussian mixtures for the probability that a voxel belongs to an activated region. Spatial correlation is accounted for in the mixing weights. At the second level, mixture component means are clustered about individual activation centers and a priori are assumed to arise from a Cox cluster process. At the third level, individual activation centers are clustered about population centers, again arising from a Cox cluster process. At the fourth level, population centers are a priori, modelled as a homogeneous Poisson process. Our approach incorporates the unknown number of mixture components and individual centers into the model as parameters whose posterior intensities are estimated by reversible jump Markov Chain Monte Carlo. We demonstrate our method on a recently published fMRI study.
