Joint Embedding of Structural and Functional Brain Networks with Graph Neural Networks for Mental Illness Diagnosis

Multimodal brain networks characterize complex connectivities among different brain regions from both structural and functional aspects and provide a new means for mental disease analysis. Recently, Graph Neural Networks (GNNs) have become a de facto model for analyzing graph-structured data.

FBNetGen: Task-aware GNN-based fMRI Analysis via Functional Brain Network Generation

Recent studies in neuroscience show great potential of functional brain networks constructed from fMRI data for popularity modeling and clinical predictions. However, existing functional brainnetworks are noisy and unaware of down stream prediction tasks, while also incompatible with recent powerful machine learning models of GNNs.

BrainNNExplainer: An Interpretable Graph Neural Network Framework for Brain Network based Disease Analysis

Interpretable brain network models for disease prediction are of great value for the advancementof neuroscience. GNNs are promising to model complicated network data, but they are prone to overfitting and suffer from poor interpretability, which prevents their usage in decision-critical scenarios like healthcare.
