Neural Decoding for Macaque’s Finger Position: Convolutional Space Model
   In this paper, we study how to use the number of spike signals in a macaque’s motor cortex to estimate the position of its finger movement. First, we analyze the time correlation of a traditional state space model (SSM) and... Read more

Decoding Native Cortical Representations for Flexion and Extension at Upper Limb Joints Using Electrocorticography
       Brain–machine interface (BMI) researchers have traditionally focused on modeling endpoint reaching tasks to provide the control of neurally driven prosthetic arms. Most previous research has focused on achieving an endpoint control through a Cartesian-coordinate-centered approach. However, a joint-centered approach could... Read more

simBCI – A framework for studying BCI methods by simulated EEG
Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) methods are commonly studied using Electroencephalogram (EEG) data recorded from human experiments. For understanding and developing BCI signal processing techniques real data is costly to obtain and its composition is apriori unknown. The brain mechanisms generating the... Read more

Mathematical Modeling for Description of Oscillation Suppression Induced by Deep Brain Stimulation
    A mathematical modeling for description of oscillation suppression by deep brain stimulation (DBS) is explored in this work. High frequency DBS introduced to the basal ganglia network can suppress pathological neural oscillations that occur in the Parkinsonian state. However, selecting... Read more

Modeling Contrast-Imaging-Assisted Optimal Targeted Drug Delivery: A Touchable Communication Channel Estimation and Waveform Design Perspective
To maximize the effect of treatment and minimize the adverse effect on patients, we propose to optimize nanorobots-assisted targeted drug delivery (TDD) for locoregional treatment of tumor from the perspective of touchable communication channel estimation and waveform design. The drug... Read more

Spatial Resolution Improvement of EEG Source Reconstruction using swLORETA
Electroencephalography (EEG) and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) are non invasive neuro-imaging modalities largely used in neurology explorations. MRI is considered as a static modality and could be so important for anatomy by its high spatial resolution. EEG, on the other... Read more
