Title: Investigation of Functional Utility of High Frequency Oscillations: Applications in Neuromodulation and Functional Neurosurgery
Abstract: Despite the recent advances in neural engineering to process oscillatory brain activity in different scenarios such as brain machine interfaces, limited progress has been done towards the interpretation of oscillatory neural activity (such as LFPs, iEEG or ECoG) with computational intelligence for clinical decision making. In this talk, I will summarize our efforts towards mapping of subcortical regions during awake brain surgeries using machine learning and neural signal processing for the optimization of DBS in PD. Moreover, I provide additional perspectives regarding the use of machine intelligence for the detection of localized high frequency oscillations (HFOs) in large scale iEEG datasets for identification of seizure onset zone in epilepsy.
