Titolo: Dynamical connectivity in neuroimaging data: what we look for, how we can(not) find it
Quando: 14 febbraio 2020, ore 12:00
Dove: Aula Galilei, ITAB
Relatore: Daniele Marinazzo, Università di Ghent (Belgio) 
Abstract: I will give a general (yet personal) overview on dynamical interactions in multivariate systems, and go through some applications to neuroimaging data.
I will insist on the theoretical framework underlying functional connectivity, Granger causality, transfer entropy, dynamic causal models, and stress the importance of considering higher order interactions.


Titolo: Sodium imaging: challenges and gains
Quando: 5 febbraio 2020, ore 11:00
Dove: Aula Galilei, ITAB
Relatore: Claudia Wheeler-Kingshott, University College London (Regno Unito) 
Abstract: Sodium imaging provides direct quantitation of the metabolic state of tissues and integrity of cell membranes in tissue in vivo and has no rival technique able to provide similar information. With the advent of improved hardware and sequences, applications in the brain (and body) show great potential for disease prognosis and treatment monitoring. The advent of high field scanners, i.e. 7T and beyond, sodium imaging is becoming ever more appealing. Many diseases involve sodium homeostasis breakdown with sodium accumulation in damaged tissue.


: Towards an Objective Evaluation of EEG/MEG Source Estimation Methods
Quando: 23 gennaio 2020, ore 14:30
Dove: Aula Galilei, palazzina ITAB
Relatore: Olaf Hauk, Università di Cambridge (Regno Unito)
Abstract: The question “What is the spatial resolution of EEG/MEG?” can only be answered with many ifs and buts, as the answer depends on a large number of parameters. Here, we describe a framework for resolution analysis of EEG/MEG source estimation, focusing on linear methods. The spatial resolution of linear methods can be evaluated using the resolution matrix, which contains the point-spread and cross-talk functions (PSFs and CTFs), respectively. They can be used to compute a range of quantitative resolution metrics, which should cover at the last three aspects of those functions: localization accuracy, spatial extent, and relative amplitude. Here, we first provide a tutorial-style introduction to resolution analysis of linear source estimation methods. We then apply these concepts to evaluate the benefit of combining EEG and MEG measurements, and to compare weighted and normalized L2-minimum-norm estimation and spatial filters. We confirm and extend previous results, showing that adding EEG to MEG improves spatial resolution, and that different methods offer different compromises among different resolution criteria.
