Dr. Martin Seeber is a postdoctoral researcher at the functional brain mapping laboratory at the University of Gevena (Switzerland). He obtained his PhD at the Institute of Neural Engineering at the Graz University (Austria). His current research focus lies in developing and improving EEG based neuroimaging tools to investigate cortical dynamics while subjects interact naturally with their environment. Such interactions include full-body movements, e.g. gait.
To overcome methodological limitations or EEG neuroimaging during full body movements, he developed methods that are capable to correct electromuscular contamination of EEG recordings during body movements, including gait. Furthermore, one main aim of his work is to identify distinct functional brain networks derived from EEG source dynamics and to relate these networks to motor behavior in humans.
Recently, he showed the ability of EEG source imaging to detect even deep sources, e.g. thalamic activities. This finding opens up novel possibilities in studying relations of subcortical and cortical dynamics, which is relevant for studying the brains’ insolvent in motor behavior.
