LaSEEB is a research lab of ISR-Lisboa at Técnico, the engineering school of the University of Lisbon. We are dedicated to research in biomedical systems and engineering, along two main lines: Biomedical Engineering and Bio-Inspired Algorithms. The approaches employed by the group involve biological and biomedical imaging, ranging from cell microscopy to ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging, as well as physiological signals such as the electroencephalogram and the electrocardiogram. Bio-inspired algorithms are also developed, ranging from evolutionary computing to swarm intelligence and agent-based simulations, applied to medicine and biology, but also to agriculture, energy and operational research areas. A special emphasis is given to the study of human brain function and neuroengineering, with applications in sleep, cognition and neurofeedback, as well as in pathologies such as epilepsy, dementia, cerebrovascular and psychiatric diseases.
Main research areas:
Neuroengineering (sleep, cognition, neurofeedback, BCI)
Neuroimaging (EEG, fMRI, brain dynamics and networks)
Biosignals and biological and biomedical image processing
MRI methods (diffusion-weigthed imaging, quantitative MRI)
Biologically inspired optimization and complex systems simulation
