We are happy to announce the 'Biomag2012 analysis competition'. Please
consider participating or encourage students, postdocs and colleagues to
take part. See below for details.
Ole Jensen and Ali Bahramisharif
*Biomag2012 analysis competition - distributed representations
*The decoding of mental states and neuronal representations from brain
imaging data is a research field in rapid development (Spiers HJ,
Maguire EA. Decoding human brain activity during real-world experiences.
Trends Cogn Sci. 2007 ; Haynes JD, Rees G. Decoding mental states from
brain activity in humans. Nat Rev Neurosci. 2006). These decoding
approaches have a great potential in MEG research where data are
recorded from hundreds of sensors with a millisecond time resolution. In
particular cognitive neuroscience could benefit from further development
of decoding approaches in order to identify representational specific
_The aims of the competition is to:
* Promote the development and application of new multivariate analysis
techniques for decoding of brain activity
* Make the audience aware of novel approaches
* Elucidate the pros and cons of different the techniques
o Which assumptions are behind a given approach?
o What are the limitations?
* Attract signal-processing experts from outside the MEG field
* Encourage a discussion on the cognitive insight which the techniques
can bring about
The deadline for submitting results is Aug 17, 2012
