The next Doctoral Research Seminar is on "Linear Models of Neurophysiological Responses to Auditory Stimuli: Methodological Considerations for Neuroscience Applications" by Alireza Malekmohammadi, ICS.
Abstract: Substantial focus in cognitive neuroscience is identifying the correlates of human neural changes in response to sensory processing such as speech and music. Such correlations could be employed to establish a model which describes the functional relationship between some key features of sensory stimuli and related neural activity. Therefore, sensory neuroscience has seen rapid growth in performing linear models for studying the effect of dynamic environmental stimuli on the human brain. Linear models seek to discover how any dynamic changes in sensory stimuli such as speech and music are linearly reflected in the neural responses of the human brain obtained by EEG or MEG. In this presentation, we aim to indicate crucial technical and methodological considerations for implementing a linear model between neural changes and auditory stimuli from the beginning of the study to the end. In other words, this presentation covers essential concerns and techniques that a researcher needs to be considered for designing a paradigm, processing EEG/MEG signals, processing speech, and implementing a linear model.
