The aim of the 9th International Summer School in Biomedical engineering is to provide education and practical exercises in the field of non-invasive dynamic brain imaging. This will include methodological approaches and challenges, measurement devices and characteristics, types of underlying theoretic modeling, specifics of data analysis, ability to derive conclusions about neuroscientific meaning. The program contains thematic lectures on hardware for brain imaging in the field of EEG, MEG and near infrared spectroscopy and the clinical application of these modalities. Further, signal decomposition methods for feature extraction or denoising of electrophysiological data will be introduced. The summer school additionally includes lectures about neural mass modeling and the neuroelectromagentic inverse problem. The second important aim of the International Summer School consist in providing contact with both leading experts in the field and other students with similar interests. This way, the meeting will facilitate the exchange of ideas on latest developments and help to build professional networks. The students will obtain soft skills with the focus on research project management specific for PhD students.
