Where Art meets Science: A collaboration with La Fura Dels Baus

There is a long history of art and science looking for each other. As Leonardo da Vinci said: “to develop a complete mind, study the science of art, study the art of science. Learn how to see. Realize that everything connects to everything else”. https://www.flickr.com/photos/epicalab/albums                                In 2008, in the University of Yale, a new […]

EEG IN THE AIR

EEG is in the Air   “I’m looking up because that is where I want to be” Anonymous … most likely an aviator.   Brain imaging techniques are usually cumbersome and require to be used in controlled lab environments to avoid the well known artefacts. That is why, as a neuroscientist, I have always been […]

Algorithmic complexity of EEG for neurodegenerative disease progression

As we have already discussed in a previous blog on Brain Consciousness and Complexity, algorithmic complexity is an intrinsic property of the brain dynamics, and be estimated through the Lempel-Ziv-Welch algorithm from the EEG (electroencephalogram) signals (Figure X0). In this blog we discuss our recent paper on the relationship between algorithmic complexity and prognosis of […]

Monitoring effects of Transcranial Current Stimulation with EEG, fMRI, MEG, NIRS.

Transcranial current stimulation (tCS) seems to be a powerful tool to make the link between brain function and disease. This has been demonstrated in current research. However, we have yet to fully understand the underlying neurobiological mechanisms of tCS. The goal of combining tCS with neurophysiological and neuroimaging tools is twofold: a) these techniques can […]
