CONQUER CollabOrative

Brain Imaging EEG and fNIR

Overview

Interdisciplinary

CONQUER Collaborative, an interdisciplinary effort which brings together faculty, students and resources from the School of Biomedical Engineering, Psychology, Psychiatry, Nursing and Health Professions, Neurology, Neurobiology, Neurosciences, Visualization, Gaming, Computer Science, Education and other partner units (regional, national and international).

Brain Observatory

CONQUER Collaborative aims to provide interdisciplinary researchers a unique brain observatory for studying human brain function and its relationship to behavior in healthy and clinical populations. The center is equipped with a comprehensive suite of monitoring, processing, analysis and visualization technologies to conduct human subject experiments based on two complementary modalities, namely, the near-infrared (NIR) based functional optical brain imaging [fNIR] and the electroencephalogram [EEG].

Optical Brain Imaging

The laboratory is focused on the development, systems integration and field/clinical deployment of optical brain imaging techniques to monitor human brain activity of healthy individuals and patients. The team has been at the forefront of the development of portable and wearable fNIR systems as well as in the development of signal processing methodology.
