Stochastic models for increments of EEG recordings using heavy-tailed and fractional diffusions


Project Description

The goal of this project is to build new stochastic models for the EEG data using stochastic processes, namely heavy-tailed diffusion and fractional diffusion.

Electroencephalogram (EEG) is a record of electrical activity generated by a large number of cortical neurons in the brain. The supervisors have real-world EEG data from African children affected by cerebral malaria, as well as data on subsequent neurodevelopmental and cognitive outcomes of these children. The over-arching goal of the project is to build new stochastic models for the EEG data using stochastic processes, namely heavy-tailed diffusion and fractional diffusion. The proposed new mathematical methods will result in estimation of the EEG parameters, which could predict which children would have neurocognitive deficits after surviving cerebral malaria.

Funding Notes

UK Research Council eligibility conditions apply.

Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.
