Project Title

MindPrint: Exploring uniqueness of individuals' brain signals


Jianhua Chen, Louisiana State University

Funding Periods

Full Project (May 1, 2022 - April 30, 2025)

Startup Project (May 1, 2018 - August 18, 2020)


The brain state of a specific population will be explored under daily naturalistic stress; collected anonymized data will be shared with researchers to support brain initiative research. In addition, the PI's proposed protocol will help explore the effect of stimuli on the permanence and distinctiveness of mindprint of individuals' brain. Another novel approach to be explored in this research is developing an algorithm for searching possible patterns in an intelligent way by means of a data mining technique. Note that the proposed framework utilizes a hypercube in representation of the brain activity despite other approaches that separate channels and/or brain wave bands to create input features or feature maps. Furthermore, developing and implementing a curriculum to train the workforce in computational biomedical applications utilizing brain signals is new in the region. This curriculum can also be transferred to workforce training programs nationwide.
