State-of-the-art Research EEG Facilities in Islamabad, Pakistan

For decades, Pakistan has been suffering from earthquakes, floods, poverty, political instability, a fragile infrastructure, terrorism and regional violence. Indeed, it has been described as a hard country. Given these circumstances, is Pakistan a good choice for setting up a new research EEG laboratory?

  • Multimodal Fingerprints of Resting State Networks as assessed by Simultaneous Trimodal MR-PET-EEG Imaging

Multimodal Fingerprints of Resting State Networks as assessed by Simultaneous Trimodal MR-PET-EEG Imaging

In this work, we show the implementation of simultaneous trimodal imaging by employing the benefits of EEG, to acquire the electrophysiology of the brain, simultaneously with PET, to ascertain metabolic details, and MRI, to integrate brain function and structure. Trimodal imaging methodology is presented here for the first time, and we have carried out a pilot study to highlight its advantages.

Basal ganglia microstructure and EEG – a research expedition to the Philippines

The last years have seen an overwhelming amount of research aiming to disentangle the neural mechanisms underlying goal-directed behavior and cognitive control processes. In that regard, the basal ganglia have attracted much interest. It is known that the striatum is a very complex neuroanatomical structure and can be subdivided into the ‘matrix’ and the ‘striosomes’. Yet, it has been unclear whether this striatal microstructure is important to consider for cognitive functions, as well.

  • The sound of silence: an EEG hyperscanning study

Understanding how sleep affects the human thalamus with EEG-fMRI

We are able to show using EEG-fMRI that the functional connectivity of the thalamus is generally increased by sleep onset and depth, and that sleep has a differential effect on sub-divisions of the thalamus. EEG-fMRI is a vital tool to understand the impact of sleep on cortical and subcortical processing.

Annapurna Base Camp: Studying the Brain at High Altitude

Human achievement at high altitude requires the performance of skilled behaviors with cognitive clarity. To better understand how the brain changes at high altitude during a motor task we used the actiCAP Xpress Bundle to characterize motor circuit changes up to 4,130 meters in the Himalayan mountains of Nepal.

  • EEG-assisted retrospective motion correction for fMRI (E-REMCOR) and automated implementation (aE-REMCOR)

EEG-assisted retrospective motion correction for fMRI (E-REMCOR) and automated implementation (aE-REMCOR)

Electroencephalography (EEG) concurrently acquired with fMRI provides high temporal resolution information about brain activity as well as subject head movement. We introduced an EEG-assisted retrospective motion correction (E-REMCOR) method that utilizes EEG data to correct for head movements in fMRI on a slice-by-slice basis and substantially improves the quality of the data. To further enhance the usability of E-REMCOR, especially for the large-scale EEG-fMRI studies, we developed an automatic and improved implementation of E-REMCOR, referred as aE-REMCOR.

Men at work: Mobile EEG as a new tool for neuroergonomics

Our recent study “Age-sensitive effects of enduring work with alternating cognitive and physical load. A study applying mobile EEG in a real life working scenario” demonstrates how mobile EEG can be utilized not only for user state examination but also for the evaluation of cognitive processing in real life working situations. Here is a summary of our publication.

  • Using resting state EEG to investigate long-term stability in children’s frontal EEG alpha asymmetry

Using resting state EEG to investigate long-term stability in children’s frontal EEG alpha asymmetry

In a recent study (Müller, B. C. N., Kühn-Popp, N., Meinhardt, J., Sodian, B., & Paulus, M. 2015. Long-term stability in children’s frontal EEG alpha asymmetry between 14-months and 83-months. International Journal of Developmental Neuroscience, 41, 110-114), we measured resting state alpha EEG in children at two measurement points. This user research article provides an overview of our study.
