Sci Rep 2021 Jun 8;11(1):12064. Epub 2021 Jun 8.

School of Engineering, Computing and Mathematical Sciences, Auckland University of Technology, Auckland, New Zealand.

This paper proposes a novel method and algorithms for the design of MRI structured personalized 3D spiking neural network models (MRI-SNN) for a better analysis, modeling, and prediction of EEG signals. It proposes a novel gradient-descent learning algorithm integrated with a spike-time-dependent-plasticity algorithm. The models capture informative personal patterns of interaction between EEG channels, contrary to single EEG signal modeling methods or to spike-based approaches which do not use personal MRI data to pre-structure a model.
