In order to localize the epileptogenic zone from non-invasive electroencephalographic recordings, it is necessary to solve an ill-posed inverse problem. Several methods are available for this purpose, and their reliability and accuracy have been tested so far mostly with synthetic data. The aim of the project is to quantify the spatial resolution achievable by different inverse methods in vivo, using a unique data set of combined non-invasive and invasive recordings. As a side task, the research fellow will evaluate possible strategies for combining the results from different methods in order to improve accuracy and reliability.
