The past findings have suggested that temporal correlation may relate the communications between the distributed areas. There are some studies in Magnetoencephalography and electroencephalography to analyze the functional connectivity between cortical areas with the oscillations feature of neuronal activity. However, it is also important to observe the functional connectivity through temporal correlation between cortical areas. We proposed a beamformer-based approach which exploits a maximum correlation criterion to maximize the significance level of correlation between brain activities. This criterion leads to a closed-form solution of the dipole orientation. Experiments with simulation data clearly demonstrate the effectiveness, necessity, and accuracy of the proposed method.
