Deep Neural Network to Map Human Brain Activity from EEG to fMRI

Organisatsiooni nimi
Computational Neuroscience Lab
There are different techniques to measure human brain activity. One of them, EEG, can show precisely *when* the activity occurred in time, but provides almost no information about *where* inside the brain the activity happened. Another technology, fMRI, is exactly the opposite: it shows precise 3D location of the source of activity, but cannot tell when exactly that activity took place.

We have a dataset where both EEG and fMRI data were recorded simultaneously. That allows to try to train a network (or another ML model) to predict location of fMRI activity from EEG recording.

The outcome of this work will be a model, that gets piece of EEG data as input and tells which part of brain this activity is most likely to be originating from. This would be important contribution to computational neuroscience, field of source localization and, if done well, might yield publishable result.
