We will participate the 5th Brain Stimulation Conference, in-person, unless something comes up. There will be two presentations from our group.
In our Academy of Finland funded (#348631, #353798), GUIDE-IN-TMS project , we are developing an MRI-guided major depression disorder treatment planning method using individualized, network-targeted TMS. To achieve this we are building a novel system that we named the "dual-closed-loop TMS-EEG-MRI", where we adjust TMS parameters using feedback from both EEG and fMRI in (near) real time.
In this project, we developed a real-time tractography-assisted TMS neuronavigation system. Key features include the application of state-of-the-art tractography practices, the ability to tune tractography parameters on the fly, and the display of thousands of new streamlines every few seconds using a novel uncertainty visualization technique. Click the video for a demonstration of our system. A preprint can be accessed from here.
Trekker is an open-source fiber-tracking software that is used by many research groups around the world. It estimates structural connections in the brain using diffusion MRI data using the parallel transport tractography (PTT) algorithm. We used Trekker and won awards in all the international tractography competitions organized since 2017. In 2021 MICCAI CDMRI tractography challenge, all the top three teams used Trekker.
The setup we are building for the concurrent use of TMS, EEG and MRI for GUIDE-IN-TMS project, where we aim to develop a new treatment planning technique for major depression disorder
We built a system that is capable of computing and visualizing structural connectivity information in real-time for TMS neuronavigation, which was presented in the 5th Brain Stimulation Conference in Lisbon
Joonas is presenting his work for real-time EEG-phase estimation during recordings made inside the MRI
