Epilepsy Neuroinformatics Laboratory
The Neuroinformatics Laboratory undertakes advanced neuroimaging analysis methods development and applied research to further our understanding of the human brain in health and disease.
Whilst the work in the laboratory is relevant to a wide range of brain mapping applications, a particular emphasis of the research is towards methods that can help better understand the causes and consequences of epileptic seizures. This includes implementation, development and application of advanced image analysis procedures for structural and functional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI, fMRI) and electroencephalography (EEG) - including simultaneous EEG & fMRI. These non-invasive imaging modalities together with advanced computational methods are capable of mapping human brain activity at millimetre spatial resolution and millisecond temporal resolution. Our scientists work collaboratively with local and international clinical research teams, sharing analysis methods and data in a multidisciplinary pursuit of discovery.
