Low-density EEG for Source Activity Reconstruction using Partial Brain Models

Andres Soler, Eduardo Giraldo, Marta Molinas

Abstract

Brain mapping studies have shown that the source reconstruction performs with high accuracy by using high-density EEG montages, however, several EEG devices in the market provide low-density configurations and thus source reconstruction is considered out of the scope of those devices. In this work, our aim is to use a few numbers of electrodes to reconstruct the neural activity using partial brain models, therefore, we presented a pipeline to estimate the brain activity using a low-density EEG on brain regions of interest, the partial brain model formulation and several criteria for channel selection. Two regions have been considered to be studied, the occipital region and motor cortex region. For the presented study synthetic EEG signals were generated simulating the activation of sources with a frequency in the beta range at the occipital region, and mu rhythm range at the motor cortex areas. Novel methods for electrode reduction and models for specific brain areas are presented. We assessed the quality of the reconstructions by measuring the localization error, obtaining a mean localization error below 7 mm and 16 mm with sLORETA and MSP methods respectively, by using a low-density EEG with eight channels and partial brain models.
