The full list of publications from June 2020 on can be found under AIMS-Publicaties.


Chiara Rossi and Fahimeh are currently presenting at BIOMAG 2022 Birmingham. Chiara is presenting on different preprocessing algorithms to assess event related fields (pdf fileBIOMAG 2022 Poster Chiara (1.86 MB)) and Fahimeh is presenting on her work providing a proof-of-concept of the 1/f rollof as biomarker of excitation/inhibition ratio in MS patients (pdf fileBIOMAG 2022 Poster Fahimeh (3.38 MB)). 

OHBM 2022

We are very happy that AIMS will be present at OHBM 2022 in Glasgow! We are even happier that Chiara Rossi 's abstract on dynamic brain states during working memory has been accepted for an oral presentation! After the conference, we will upload her presentation here, but you can already have a look at her poster pdf file2022-OHBM-Chiara_HC (1.88 MB)

Also at HBM, Chiara will present her work on how multiple sclerosis affects the brain dynamics during the n-back task, you can check her poster here: pdf file2022-OHBM-Chiara_MS (1.67 MB)


At IMSCOGS 2022, the AIMS lab will present the following results: 

We are very happy that Stijn will be able to present his work on Brain age as a surrogate marker of cognitive impairment in multiple sclerosis. If you want to re-digest all the information, you can read his preprint or check out his poster! pdf fileIMSCOGS_2022_Denissen (7.59 MB)

Stijn will further elaborate this work via federated learning (i.e. your data remains at your site); please feel free to reach out if you are interested!

We are also very happy to discuss the following research results through the poster session!
