Brain And SIgnal Research & Analysis laboratory

Develop your research skills in brain data learning
“My training has given me the tools and the confidence to understand and critically assess the contents of research papers so that I can direct my own research.”
Can Gafuroğlu (Undergrad student)

Applications for internships are open now.


BASIRA (Brain And SIgnal Research & Analysis) aims to infuse advanced computer vision and machine-learning methods into big neuroimaging and signal data analysis for improving healthcare and wellbeing.  Specifically, since one can look at the brain as an image, a shape, or a connectional network, we aspire to develop advanced image-based, shape-based, and network-based medical data analysis techniques, that will provide a foundation for better understanding normal brain development and ageing, as well as how the brain gets affected by neuropsychiatric or neurodegenerative disorders. We aim to develop algorithms and architectures for mapping the healthy brain and computer-aided tools for examining the diseased/disordered brain.
More broadly, we also aim to devise efficient algorithms that perform several medical image and signal analysis tasks such as segmentation/labeling, registration, prediction, classification and regression.​
