Title: Signal and information processing methods for neural and biomedical studies
Abstract: Recent advances in signal processing and machine-learning have led to opportunities and challenges in neural and biomedical applications. In this talk, we will present several research studies in the area of signal and information processing at the Advanced Institute of Engineering and Technology of Vietnam National University, Hanoi, targeting four applications: epilepsy, cognitive conflict, Alzheimer’s disease, and liver cancer. The first study develops a relevant tensor decomposition method for EEG-based spike detection in epilepsy. The second study selects special computer-vision methods for EEG-based peak detection in cognitive conflict processing. The third study applies machine-learning methods for PET-based feature extraction and data-driven brain atlas construction in classification of Alzheimer’s disease, and for MRI-based feature extraction in prediction of pathways between multivariate brain areas and multivariate disease/behavior outcomes. The final study also applies various machine-learning methods for CT-based data-compression and dose-reduction scan in liver cancer intervention.
