BioMediTech Researchers Win Real-life Cognition Contest

A research BioMediTech group headed by Adjunct Professor Jussi Tohka in the Department of Signal Processing at TUT has won an international challenge to analyse brain imaging data collected under real-life conditions.

Tohka’s group developed a new ISC based exploratory data analysis technique called FuSeISC (Functional Segmentation of Brain fMRI during naturalistic stimulus based on Inter-Subject Correlation). The method provides an ISC based functional parcellation of the brain, which is based on differences in average ISCs and their subject-wise variation across different scenes of the movie stimulus. It allows simple and highly interesting interpretation of the activation/ISCs. The method is rooted on the basic ISC analysis provided by the openly available ISC toolbox, coupled with a novel clustering algorithm to allow the detection of brain areas that have similar ISC properties.
