Personal profile

Description of research and teaching

Research: Simultaneoous EEG/fMRI and Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI).

The aim of the research is to develop simultaenous EEG/fMRI to a clinical tool for presurgical evaulation of patients with epilepsy. In Diffusion Tensor Imaging the emphasis is on sequence optimization and DTI data analysis (including tractography).
