Dear David,
Thank you very much! By the way, what do you think about the efficiency of ICA? Does spatial-ICA have the ability
to seprate the genine BOLD signal from the false signal induced by task-related movements?

Dear Zhang,
You should use realignment parameters and possibly scan nulling as extra regressors in your GLM which will remove false positives from your results. If movement always occurs with your task then you cannot separate the motion form the response and you need new data!

Subject: [SPM] How to eliminate the head movement related to task?
Dear SPMers,
I have a special case whose fMRI data is found having task-related movements during scan. the maximal extent is 2.5mm. I'd like to know how to eliminate the false effect to result of this movement ? is there any paper focusing on this?
Thank you very much!
