Multimodal Imaging of Brain Function

The function and dysfunction of the human brain is the foundation of behaviour, both for the individual and society. The researchers in this group focus on a variety of research questions within the scope of Biological Psychology and Neuroscience, addressing the following clinical and behavioural areas: ADHD (Barry, Clarke, Johnstone), Cannabis use and Schizophrenia (Solowij, Schira, Greenwood), Arousal and Inhibition (Barry, Johnstone) and Visual Perception and Action (Palmisano, Schira, Barry, Miellet). The core activity of this group is exploring and establishing advanced methods that integrate several, often complementary, imaging modalities, such as EEG, fMRI and blood biochemistry. In a world where research techniques develop at great speed, the aim of this group is to advance the use of such techniques at UOW so that our research remains cutting edge, competitive and relevant.

MRI guides EEG source localisation
While EEG provides great temporal resolution (ms) but poor spatial resolution (ca. 6 cm), fMRI allows great spatial resolution (sub mm) but poor temporal resolution (ca. 1 s). By combining these two techniques some of these disadvantages can be overcome. Further, head models, guided by high quality MRI anatomy scans of individual subjects helps to significantly improve the precision of EEG source modelling.
