Lösungen des neuroelektromagnetischen Vorwärtsproblems mit Hilfe der Methode der Finiten Elemente


  • Incorporation of tissue inhomogeneity and anisotropy in order to achieve greater accuracy.
  • The main goal is to investigate the impact of simplifications and model misspecifications onto the accuracy of forward calculation and source localization.
  • The result of this project should be a comprehensive account on the sensitivity of forward calculations and source reconstructions towards possible inaccuracies in the forward model, depending on source position, noise, sensor configuration and other parameters.
