Project information

In this sub-project of the overall AVATAR project, the anonymisation of electroencephalography (EEG) data is being researched. It (1) determines the conditions under which EEGs can be recognised and (2) explores methods to anonymise EEGs while retaining the medically relevant information. Furthermore, (3) the theoretical information content of EEGs will be analysed in order to identify the risk of re-identification with future methods.
