Model parameters for background AEPs

Proposal details

Title: Model parameters for background AEPs
Research Area(s): Brain Modeling
Background: Auditory evoked potentials (AEPs) are derived from EEG data and are the brain's response to simple auditory stimuli. We investigate these phenomena using a physiology-based corticothalamic model of the brain.
Aims: Our aim is to compare background AEP parameters to resting-state EEG parameters; differences should tell us information about how networks in the brain handle information processing.
Method: Data from normal subjects is obtained and fitted to the Robinson et al. model using a Monte Carlo method. Resulting fits are filtered to produce unimodal distributions, and the parameters are derived from these distributions.
