Recently machine learning methodology has been used increasing to analyze the relationship between stimulus categories and fMRI responses. Here, we introduce a new unsupervised machine learning approach to fMRI analysis approach, in which the simple categorical description of stimulus type (e.g. type of task) is replaced by a more informative vector of stimulus features. We compared this new approach with a standard Support Vector Machine (SVM) analysis of fMRI data using a categorical description of stimulus type.
