Internship on Statistical Methods for Brain Signals

Apply

Project Description

The student will learn the state-of-the-art methods for pre-processing and modeling brain signals (in particular, electroencephalograms (EEG)). The student will explore various measures of brain functional and effective connectivity through numerical simulations and actual EEG recordings during various learning tasks. At the end of the internship, the student is expected to submit a written report, a poster and give an informal seminar in the Statistics Program. ​​​​
Program - Applied Mathematics and Computer Science

Hernando Ombao

Professor, Statistics

Hernando Ombao
Professor Ombao’s research interest is in the statistical
modeling of time series data and visualization of high dimensional signals and
images. He has developed a coherent set of methods for modeling
and inference on dependence in complex brain signals; testing for differences
in networks across patient groups; biomarker identification
and disease classification based on networks and in modeling association
between high dimensional data from different domains (e.g.,
genetics, brain function and behavior).

Desired Project Deliverables
