About usThe Neuroinformatics Research Group was established at the Department of Computer Science and Engineering in 2003. Its members are also members of the Biomedical Research Group established at the European Centre of Excellence NTIS at the Faculty of Applied Sciences, University of West Bohemia in Pilsen.
The research group focuses on the following research topics and activities
- We measure and evaluate electrical activity of human brain and explore human behavior in stressful and stereotype situations. We use the methods of electroencephalography (EEG) and methods of event-related potentials (ERP). Within our partner network (Czech Technical University in Prague, University Hospital in Pilsen, Škoda Auto, Inc., Pilsen brewery,…) we are responsible for technical and scientific issues, e.g. EEG/ERP laboratory operation, design and implementation of new experiments, development of advanced software tools for EEG/ERP research, and analysis and proposal of signal processing methods. Currently we are working on the following projects:
- In clinical phoniatry we participate in the development of modern diagnostic procedures and classification tools for assessing the quality of the glottis closure (processing and evaluation of data from high-speed camera, videokymography, multidimensional voice analysis and examination of the voice).
- In clinical audiometry, we focus on the development of algorithms used for automatic control during the examination of perception threshold and for evaluation of latency. These parameters objectify the results of audiometric examinations.
