New Trends in Brain Signal Processing and Analysis

Submission Deadline: 31 January 2019

IEEE Access invites manuscript submissions in the area of New Trends in Brain Signal Processing and Analysis.

Novel computational techniques in the field of neuroscience have been introduced in the literature and others are still under investigation. These studies cover a wide range of technological novelties such as controlled virtual environments that include higher cognitive and executive procedures and investigations of signals generated by the ailing brain, as found in posttraumatic disorders, cerebral palsy, or traumatic brain injury, for example. New trends in brain signal processing and analysis aim not only to study the pathology but also to explore ways to promote brain function recovery. Examples can include noninvasive brain stimulation (brain modulation), more accurate and faster algorithms than the traditional ones, neurorobotics and brain-machine interfaces. A better understanding of how our brain works with new realistic computational algorithms makes it possible to simulate and model specific brain functions for the development of new machine learning techniques.

The main objective of this Special Section in IEEE Access is to bring together recent advances and trends in methodological approaches, theoretical studies, mathematical and applied techniques related to brain signal processing and analysis. We invite researchers to contribute original work related to the different fields of knowledge, such as neuroengineering, rehabilitation, psychology, pattern recognition, computational intelligence, machine learning and robotics, used in the context of understanding how the brain works, reacts, and adapts.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Brain Signal Processing Techniques
  • Brain Image Processing Techniques
  • Brain Source Estimation
  • Brain Network Analysis
  • The Brain in different realities: Virtual, Augmented, and Mixed
  • Brain-Machine Interface Systems
  • Brain-to-Brain Interaction
  • Automatic Detection and Diagnosis of Neurologic Diseases
  • Neurorobotics
  • Internet of Brain Things
  • EEG Biometrics

We also highly recommend the submission of multimedia with each article as it significantly increases the visibility, downloads, and citations of articles.
