Bayesian smoothing of dipoles in magneto-/electroencephalography
A Monte Carlo algorithm is used to approximate the smoothing distribution for a time-varying set of current dipoles for dynamic estimation of multi-dipole states from magneto-/electroencephalography (M/EEG) time series and it is shown that the estimates provided are more accurate than those provided by the filtering distribution.
Neural source localization using particle filter with optimal proportional set resampling
This study proposes a new approach based on the implementation of a particle filter that uses minimum sampling variance resampling methodology to track the neural dipole sources of cerebral activity and demonstrates that it can naturally estimate the sources more precisely than the traditional systematic resamplings scheme in PFs.
Localizing Current Dipoles from EEG Data Using a Birth–Death Process
This paper model the relationship between current dipoles and EEG observations using a state-space model where the creation and annihilation of dipoles is represented as a birth–death process and the proposed model and estimation method can effectively estimate the number and positions of the dipoles.
Regularizing Solutions to the MEG Inverse Problem Using Space-Time Separable Covariance Functions
In magnetoencephalography (MEG) the conventional approach to source reconstruction is to solve the underdetermined inverse problem independently over time and space. Here we present how the
Implementation of a square‐root filtering approach in marginalized particle filters for mixed linear/nonlinear state‐space models
Marginalized particle filter (MPF) takes advantage of both Kalman filter and particle filter frameworks to estimate nonlinear state‐space models with reduced number of calculations in comparison to
Inverse Modeling for MEG/EEG Data
An overview of the state-of-the-art for mathematical methods that are used to reconstruct brain activity from neurophysiological data is provided and an application to the pre–surgical evaluation of epileptic patients is described.
Comprehensive Review of Models and Methods for Inferences in Bio-Chemical Reaction Networks
The findings indicate that many combinations of models, tasks and methods are still relatively unexplored, and there are many new research opportunities to explore combinations that have not been considered-perhaps for good reasons.
State Space Models
This work proposes to circumvent the problem of slow convergence in the EM algorithm by applying any off-the-shelf quasi-Newton-type optimizer, which operates on the linear state-space models.

A multi-target detection and particle filtering algorithm is developed to estimate the dipolar source dynamics, and a minimum norm (MN) based estimation method is incorporated to construct the birth-death move for the dynamical number of dipolar sources.
Probabilistic initiation and termination for MEG multiple dipole localization using sequential Monte Carlo methods
This work model the problem in a Bayesian framework, proposes a linear prior detection method as well as a probabilistic approach for target number estimation, and target state initiation/termination, and applies a sequential Monte Carlo algorithm to numerically estimate location and moment of the dipolar current sources.
Efficient Bayesian Tracking of Multiple Sources of Neural Activity: Algorithms and Real-Time FPGA Implementation
New Bayesian algorithms to automatically track current dipole sources of neural activity in real time and an online, window-based multiple channel decomposition processing approach that reduces the overall processing time and computational complexity are proposed.
Dynamical MEG source modeling with multi‐target Bayesian filtering
This work presents a Bayesian filtering approach for automatic estimation of dynamical source models from magnetoencephalographic data and shows here that it is able to automatically estimate the source structure in most cases more accurately than either traditional multi‐dipole modeling or minimum current estimation performed by uninformed human operators.
Dynamic filtering of static dipoles in magnetoencephalography
Assessment of model fit via marginal likelihood showed a clear preference for the proposed model and the associated reconstructions show better localisation.
Non-stationary magnetoencephalography by Bayesian filtering of dipole models
In this paper, we consider the biomagnetic inverse problem of estimating a time-varying source current from magnetic field measurements. It is assumed that the data are severely corrupted by
