The neuroscience lab specializes in exploring brain functioning both in small animals as in humans. Multimodal PET, SPECT, EEG, fMRI and optogenetics are used to study dynamic brain functioning in the healthy and epileptic rat brain. In humans, mainly epilepsy is studied and the focus is on EEG data. For this, a close collaboration exists between the neuroscience lab and the neurology department in the University Hospital of Ghent. The neuroscience lab is expert in the field of EEG source imaging (ESI), with advanced forward modelling techniques. Next to this, expertise in brain connectivity analysis is present. Also the use of machine learning in this context is investigated.
