Research groups

Neuroimaging Group
Vision, Images, Patterns and Signals (VIPS)
VIPS activities are devoted to the analysis, recognition, modeling and prediction of multivariate multidimensional signals and patterns by artificial intelligence and machine learning techniques. Specific expertise and application domains include image processing, computer vision, pattern recognition, machine learning, human-machine interaction, computer graphics, mixed reality and gaming, analysis and modeling of biomedical and neuroscience data for both basic and translational research.
Research interests
Topic Description Research area
Neuroimaging The main activity is in the field of neuroimaging, including structural (diffusion MRI) and functional (EEG, fNIRS, functional MRI) imaging as well as perceptual analysis through cognitive science methods. The goal is to gain an holistic view of human brain when inspected in specific conditions by the integration of multi-modal multi-scale probing and modeling. In addition, advanced computer vision and pattern recognition methods are employed for designing numerical biomarkers for the characterization of healthy and pathological conditions. Bioinformatics and medical informatics
Life and medical sciences
Neuroimaging Data Analysis This domain regards the analysis of data coming from sensing devices measuring the brain strucural and functional information. The main utilised device is Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) in its various modalities such as diffusion, structural, and functional MRI, as well as other sensors like EEG, fNIRS, MEG. The main goal is to better understanding brain functions by means of an integrated functional and structural analysis of the brain connectivity or of specific brain regions. This investigation is mainly performed with reference to neurological disorders - like autism and schizophrenia - and in comparison with control (healthy) subjects. Machine Intelligence
