Members of the Centre are interested in a wide variety of challenges in neuroscience and neurology. This includes understanding the fundamental properties that make a brain healthy and understanding how these mechanisms breakdown and cause conditions such as dementia, epilepsy, Parkinson’s and schizophrenia. Collaborating with industry partners, including Neuronostics (co-founded by Professor John Terry and Dr Wessel Woldman) there is a strong emphasis on translating fundamental research into tools of practical benefits for people with neurological conditions.
Developed by Dr Luke Tait, +microstate is an open source toolbox for brain microstate analysis in electrophysiological (EEG/MEG) data. It works for sensor and source space, and includes tools for fitting brain states, statistical analysis and visualisation, and even simulations.
