Source Modeling for EEG and MEG
EEG and MEG are commonly used for brain mapping, and the study of diseases such as epilepsy, alzheimer, and others.
Classical source modeling for EEG/MEG is either focal sources, or a distributed source with sources estimated at each point in the brain.
We develop parametric one and twodimensional sources that has the advantage of the ability to model sources distributed on a curve or a surface.
Onedimensional and twodimensional sources can be estimated with EEG and MEG with our methods.
An additional 5% of the measured data can be explained using the extended source models that we developed.
The extents and the shapes of the extended sources have useful phisiological information
The real data that is used in these experiments are from N20 responses.
We have also developed model selection methods that can distinguish between different types of
source models such as moving or stationary electrical sources. Prior model selection is crucial
for accurate source localization.
