    We give a general overview of the use and possible misuse of blind source separation (BSS) and independent component analysis (ICA) in the context of neuroinformatics data processing. A clear emphasis is given to the analysis of electrophysiological recordings, as well as to functional magnetic resonance images (fMRI). Two illustrative examples include the identification and removal of artefacts i... View full abstract»
