The resolution matrix is a mathematical tool for analyzing inverse problems such as computational imaging systems. When treating network connectivity estimation as an inverse problem, the resolution matrix describes the degree to which network nodes and edges can be resolved. This is useful both for quantifying robustness of the network estimate, as well as identifying correlated activity. In this report we analyze the resolution matrix for functional MRI data from the Human Connectome project. We find that common metrics of the resolution metric can be used to identify networked activity, though with a new twist on the relationship between default mode network and the frontoparietal attention network.
