This chapter focuses on the prevalence of the nonindependence error in functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data analysis, and presents a detailed description of the nonindependence error along with information on plotting its graph. It provides various examples of this error in fMRI, including plotting the signal change in voxels selected for signal change and statistical tests performed on nonindependent data, and also presents a few heuristics for avoiding the error. Finally, the chapter looks into the various reasons for the prevalence of the nonindependence error in fMRI, including the multidimensional, qualitative, and complicated nature of fMRI data.

Keywords:   nonindependence error, fMRI, data analysis, graph, signal change, multidimensional data, qualitative data
