Dr Lucia Ballerini

I am a researcher in image analysis. I developed theoretical and application oriented methods. I have been working with different kind of images: medical, food, radar, robotic and forensic images. Recently I worked with skin lesion images and retinal images. See my 100+ publications (google scholar or researchgate) for more details

I am presently working MR brain images.

Dr Javier Escudero

We focus on processing biomedical signals and images in clinical applications.

Our main aim is to reveal the subtle changes that major diseases (e.g., Alzheimer's and epilepsy) cause in the brain activity and how this changes in different conditions and mental states.

In collaboration with researchers at Edinburgh, across the UK and overseas, we are currently working in the processing and analysis of biomedical signals, particularly human brain activity. By applying advanced mathematics, we aim at increasing our understanding of how several brain conditions progress. Of particular interest is the evaluation of brain functional connectivity in both neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative diseases to understand how they affect the way in which different brain regions interact with each other. We are also interested in the interplay between structure and function in the brain and in the application of pattern recognition techniques to highly-dimensional clinical datasets to support decision making. Finally, we also work in the development of non-invasive methods for rehabilitation purposes, being either the dexterous controls prostheses for amputees or brain-computer interfaces.

Dr Kristin Flegal

My background is in Psychology, with a concentration in Cognitive Neuroscience, and I am interested in neuroimaging research integrating basic science with clinical and translational applications. My current research uses behavioural and fMRI methods to investigate the mechanisms of cognitive training and transfer, and associated changes in patterns of brain activity. By studying the mediators of neural plasticity and identifying brain-based principles for the transfer of training, I hope to contribute to the development of interventions targeting cognitive deficits in populations ranging from brain injury to psychiatric disorders to normal ageing.
