Abstract

Neuroimaging techniques are used to image the structure and function of the nervous system for medicine, psychology, and neuroscience research. Brain data are inherently multidimensional and complex, and the recent advances in neuroimaging allow the acquisition of brain signals at an increasing spatiotemporal resolution. Being able to process the resulting large-scale data and capturing the multiway structure of the brain, tensor-based analyses are well suited for a variety of neuroimaging applications. In this review, we provide a comprehensive overview of successful tensor-based solutions used in the field of neuroimaging discuss practical challenges and the future of tensors in medical technology.
