Electroencephalogram (EEG) provides a noninvasive way to study the electrical activities of the brain for various purposes. Often it is very important for clinicians and researchers to find out where exactly in the brain electrical potentials originate. The process of finding the location and distribution of the sources that create these activities is called electrical source imaging (ESI). Unfortunately, ESI is very underutilized in clinical settings mainly because using ESI programs requires technical knowledge and is time consuming. In this presentation different ESI techniques are summarized and ways to automate the process are discussed. 

Biography: 

Dr. Mehdi Bageri-Hamaneh received  his Bachelor's and Master's in Physics from Sharif University of Technology in Iran and then moved to Case Western Reserve University to continue his education in the field of computational soft matter Physics. After earning his PhD in 2006, he started his postdoctoral training in computational biophysics at the Department of Physiology & Biophysics of CWRU. Since July 2009, he has been working as a System & Image Engineer for University Hospitals.
