Multivariate techniques for modeling single-trial EEG responses

Studying neural responses to environmental stimuli through electroencephalography (EEG), typically requires averaging hundrents or thousands of single-trial responses, and contrasting them at single electrode locations. During my PhD, I used multivariate techniques to model the distribution of single-trial EEG responses across the scalp, and extract topographic EEG responses in a data-driven way. This technique can be used to model data at the single-patient level, to decode decisions from EEG responses, or to test the role of temporal intervals in processing environmental stimuli.
