Could Machine Learning Power Up Weak Brain Imaging Studies?

Prior research on brain-wide associated studies has shown that links between brain function and structure and traits are so weak that thousands of participants are needed to detect replicable effects. However, a new study suggests stronger links can be obtained when machine learning algorithms are utilized, which can garner high-powered results from moderate sample sizes.
