[Abstract] Traditional multimodal MRI analysis is usually based on single-mode data, and the results are simply compared or correlated, but the a priori interaction information between modes is not fully utilized. Linked independent component analysis (LICA) is a multi-modal data fusion method, which can comprehensively and flexibly use independent component analysis to fuse and analyze multi-modal data, allow each modal group to have different units, signal-to-noise ratio, etc., and can automatically determine the optimal weight of each mode in the group, so as to make full use of the interactive information between modes, it has been widely used in the study of brain diseases. This paper reviews the research progress of MRI in the pathological mechanism, clinical diagnosis and classification of neuropsychiatric diseases.
