Brain And SIgnal Research & Analysis laboratory
Principal Prof Sir Pete Downes
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 (image, shape and network) gets affected by neuropsychiatric diseases such as autism or neurodegenerative disorders such as dementia. 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.
