New technique for studying human brain activity

Summary

This project investigates stimulus reconstruction from surface EEG neural activity. Improvements to surface EEG recordings may proceed with the development of skull impedance modelling using impedance tomography and magnetic resonance imaging technology. We propose to investigate the influence of behaviour on stimulus reconstruction from EEG neural activity in primary auditory cortex.
