Ongoing main projects

 

  • Development of advanced methods for qEEG/MEG analysis which:
    • are sensitive to temporal structure of the signal,
    • do not require prior knowledge of the underlying dynamics,
    • do not contain averaging procedures,
    • have special tests for non-random and non-occasional nature of the results,
    • produce results which are ease to interpret in terms of their neurophysiological correlates
  • qEEG studies of patients in vegetative (VS) and minimally conscious states (MCS) (longitudinal study), Phase II.
  • Development of Operational Architectonics framework of brain and mind functioning
  • Isomorphism between qEEG/MEG microstructure and a structure of phenomenal experience (consciousness)
  • Application of Operational Architectonics framework of brain-mind functioning to self-organizing dynamic distributed computational systems
  • qEEG study of the meditation states and development of EEG-guided personalised mediation protocols
  • qEEG study of Selfhood - development of the 3-dimensional construct model for the complex experiential selfhood based on the empirical findings on the functional-topographical specialization of 3 operational modules of brain functional network responsible for the self-consciousness processing
