PhD Scholarship in Brain Signal Analysis using EEG

Three-year PhD scholarship is available to UK, EU and overseas students and will cover home tuition fees plus a maintenance grant equivalent to the full UK Research Council rate.

The proposed research will be focused on applying data analysis methods for EEG (Electroencephalography) data analysis in investigating mental and physical fatigue. The aim is to investigate novel methods to extract neuro-markers from EEG for the identification of brain states. The discovery of neuro-markers will have great potential in a wide range of applications (i.e. military, sports and medical applications).

Key words: EEG, time-frequency analysis, phase synchrony, machine learning, pattern recognition, general linear model

Supervisor: Dr. Caroline Ling Li

Co-supervisors: Prof. Samuele Marcora, Prof. Howard Bowman
