Solving the Neuroelectromagnetic Forward Problem Using the Finite Elements Method (FEM)
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.
