The human brain is a time machine; we are constantly remembering our past, and projecting ourselves into the future. Capturing the brain’s response as these moments unfold could yield valuable insights into both how the brain works and how to better design human-centered AI systems. In this talk, I will present our research on the human brain spatiotemporal dynamics of perceived or imagined events, using a combination of MEG (magneto-encephalography) and fMRI (functional magnetic resonance imaging) methods. The fusion of both methods could lead to the development of biomarkers to aid clinicians in diagnosing disease, identifying cognitive impairments, finding ways to maintain or augment perception and cognition in healthy brains, and developing new brain-inspired machine-learning architectures.
