Towards multi-parametric hub scoring of functional cortical brain networks: An electroencephalographic (EEG) study across lifespan
Abstract: 
The attractiveness and robustness of graph theory has stimulated an unprecedented increase in studies aiming to understand the functional organization and dynamics of the brain. The investigation of brain connectomics produces a tremendous amount of data which may be examined at both a macroscopic and microscopic level. However, the interpretation of findings is still challenging. Novel methodological approaches should enhance the arsenal of the tools employed towards the understanding of the interaction of the distinct brain components.

Discrimination of Preictal and Interictal Brain States from Long-Term EEG Data
Abstract: 
Discriminating the preictal state in EEG signals is of great importance in neuroscience and the epileptic seizure prediction field has yet to provide conclusive evidence. In this study, three different classification approaches, including the Repeated Incremental Pruning to Produce Error Reduction (RIPPER) algorithm, Support Vector Machines (SVMs) and Neural Networks (NNs), are investigated for their ability to discriminate preictal from interictal EEG segments. Using public EEG data, a wide range of features is extracted from each segment and then applied to the classifiers.

Detection of Alcoholism based on EEG Signals and Functional Brain Network Features Extraction
Abstract: 
Alcohol abuse disorder or alcoholism is a common disorder that leads to brain defects and associated cognitive, emotional and behavioural impairments. Finding and extracting discriminative biological markers, which are correlated to healthy brain pattern and alcoholic brain pattern, helps us to utilize automatic methods for detecting and classifying alcoholism. Many brain disorders could be detected by analyzing the Electroencephalography (EEG) signals. In this paper, for extracting the required markers we analyze the EEG signals for two groups of alcoholic and control subjects.

EEG Classification and Short-Term Epilepsy Prognosis using Brain Computer Interface Software
Abstract: 
The recent advances of Brain Computer Interfaces (BCI) systems, can provide effective assistance for real time prognosis systems for patients who suffered from epileptic seizures. This paper presents an EEG classification strategy for short-term epilepsy prognosis, using software for Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems. A training scenario is presented, where significant features are extracted and a classification algorithm is trained. The training procedure extracts knowledge in terms of a classification model, which is employed in a real-time testing.

An Intermixed Color Paradigm for P300 Spellers: A Comparison with Gray-scale Spellers
Abstract: 
P300 speller systems represent one of the most basic applications of Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCIs). A traditional P300 speller consists of a 6 by 6 grid of characters in which each column or row in this grid intensifies at random. During such intensification process, the electroencephalography (EEG) data of the subject is recorded and analyzed to determine the character to be spelled.

Simulation of Spiral Waves and Point Sources in Atrial Fibrillation with Application to Rotor Localization
Abstract: 
Cardiac simulations play an important role in studies involving understanding and investigating the mechanisms of cardiac arrhythmias. Today, studies of arrhythmogenesis and maintenance are largely being performed by creating simulations of a particular arrhythmia with high accuracy comparable to the results of clinical experiments. Atrial fibrillation (AF), the most common arrhythmia in the United States and many other parts of the world, is one of the major field where simulation and modeling is largely used.
