The SYNEURGY project website

About

This project develops new tools based on machine learning for integration of human biological measurements from multiple modalities with brain activity patterns. Application side, the project targets the neurobiology of perception, with a focus on socio-affective stimuli.

The project is headed by M Björnsdotter, in collaboration with the groups of Prof H. Olausson, Linköping University, Sweden, and Prof J. Dauwels, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.

SYNEURGY is funded by the Seventh Framework Programme in the European Union in the form of a Marie Curie International Outgoing Fellowship (IOF) for the period 2012-06-30 - 2015-06-30.
