Event summary

Brain activity is distributed over the 3-dimensional volume and evolves in time. Mapping spatio-temporal distribution of brain activation with high-spatial resolution and high-temporal resolution is important to understand the brain and help the clinical diagnosis and management of brain disorders.

Electrophysiological source imaging (ESI) from non-invasively recorded high-density electroencephalogram (EEG) has played a significant role in advancing our ability to image brain function and dysfunction. I will discuss the principles and current state of EEG-based ESI in localising and imaging human brain activity with applications to imaging epileptic networks. I will also discuss our recent progress in non-invasive brain-computer interface to control drones or robotic arms from non-invasive EEG signals using a motor imagery paradigm. Our work on a group of human subjects further demonstrates the enhanced capability in subjects with meditation/yoga training compared with controls.
