[Comp-neuro] University of Kent PhD studentship on EEG-based mental fatigue study


PhD Scholarship available Brain Signal Analysis using EEG


Research Theme              : This project aims to perform analysis on EEG (Electroencephalography) data to investigate mental fatigue.

It might have a wide range of applications (i.e. military, sports and medical applications).


Key words                   : EEG, time-frequency analysis, phase synchrony, machine learning, pattern recognition, general linear model


Location                      : University of Kent at Medway, UK (40-50 mins from London by train)

Supervisor                  : Dr. Caroline Ling Li

Co-supervisors           : Prof. Samuele Marcora, Prof. Howard Bowman
