The Neurosignal Analysis Laboratory located at the Institute of Biomedical Engineering in Bogazici University has been involved in EEG-fMRI based neuroimaging studies using signal processing and statistical methods.
The major purpose of our research is to develop computational research tools to model the data obtained from EEG and fMRI measurements for the functional neuroimaging of the human brain.
Outcome of our research helps improve the health care quality of the people by developing effective tools to understand and visualize the data used to diagnose the problems related to the nervous system and to assess the impact of treatment methods used.
The history of EEG research in the Institute of Biomedical Engineering goes back to the beginning of 1990s with a strong emphasis on signal processing in collobaration with the EEG laboratory at the Department of Physiology in Istanbul Medical School.
Early studies were focused on analyzing the EEG data reflecting the human sensory/cognitive behavior under normal physiological and clinical conditions.
By the 2000s, we started to study the cognitive and clinical EEG data using the source reconstruction algorithms and by the 2010’s accessibility to the fMRI data enabled us to develop new ways to obtain brain images based on EEG-fMRI integration.
