Bin He, PhD

Carnegie Mellon University

Trustee Professor of Biomedical Engineering

Title: Dynamic Brain Imaging and Brain-Computer Interface

Abstract: Mapping the spatio-temporal distribution of brain activation with high spatial and temporal resolution is crucial for understanding the brain and aiding in the clinical diagnosis and management of brain disorders. We will discuss our recent work on estimating and imaging of dynamic brain source distributions from high-density EEG/MEG, leveraging ML/AI and computational neural mass models. We will demonstrate its application in imaging dynamic epileptic brains, validated against invasive intracranial EEG recordings and surgical resection outcomes. We will also discuss the principles and state-of-the-art advancements in brain-computer interfaces using noninvasive EEG. Through novel machine learning algorithms, we showcase the decoding of human “intention,” enabling individuals to control the flight of a drone and a robotic arm through mere thought, as recorded by and decoded from noninvasive EEG signals. Our recent study also highlights the potential of transcranial focused ultrasound neuromodulation to further enhance the performance of EEG brain-computer interfaces.
