Steve Mayhew's research is focused on using simultaneous EEG-fMRI recordings in humans to gain a better understanding of the empirical coupling between electrophysiological and haemodynamic measurements of brain activity.
Dr Mayhew's research investigates:
The coupling between evoked and induced oscillatory EEG responses to sensory stimulation and the amplitude and shape of the BOLD HRF
The importance of dynamic, distributed networks of brain regions
The relationship between ongoing brain activity and the magnitude of the brain's response to stimulation
Combining EEG-fMRI with measurements of cerebral blood flow obtained with arterial-spin labelling to investigate neurovascular coupling and the negative BOLD response.
Mathematical modelling of EEG and fMRI response to investigate neurovascular coupling mechanisms
