Reconstruction of sources of physiological signals
Many physiological processes, like e.g. neuronal activity in the brain, contraction of muscles, or the beating of the heart, are accompanied by electrical current flow. These currents cause electric and magnetic fields, which can be measured outside the body. In order to gain information on and achieve understanding of the underlying physiological processes, the sources of these fields need to be reconstructed. In particular, source reconstruction based on electroencephalographic or magnetoencephalographic measurements is a key technique for understanding how the brain works and is used in brain research as well as in various neurological applications.
The objective of the International Summer School is to provide in depth education and practical exercises on source reconstruction techniques, covering both theoretical foundations and practical applications. It aims at a thorough understanding of the underlying mechanisms and thus will develop a critical view on current applications and possible future developments. The International Summer School provides contact with leading experts in the fields and is expected to facilitate the exchange of ideas on latest developments.
Target group: (up to 40 participants)
• PhD students
• advanced Master students
