Conference “Theoretical Physics and Mathematics of the Brain: Bridges Across Disciplines and Applications”
Conference “Theoretical Physics and Mathematics of the Brain: Bridges Across Disciplines and Applications” will be held in Skoltech 4-5 of December. Centre director, Alexei Ossadtchi will give a presentation on “Mapping normal and pathological brain function with magnetoencephalography”

Magnetoencephalography(MEG) opens a non-invasive window into the brain function and allow us to explore neural activity on sub-centimeter spatial scale with millisecond temporal resolution. Mathematical methods for analysis of MEG data serve to transform sensor measurements into the cortical activation maps and make MEG a unique brain imaging tool with resolution properties that surpass all other existing non-invasive brain imaging modalities.
I will describe our recently developed methods that yield finer cortical activation maps when analyzing MEG data from cognitive experiments, imaging functional connectivity and exploring abnormal interictal activity in patients with epilepsy.
