BESA Research 6.1

BESA Research 6.1 July 2016 is the latest version of the BESA Research series. It offers three major new features:

  • Cortical LORETA and CLARA – use the individual cortex as source space for LORETA and CLARA analysis. Unlike other cortex-restricted methods that only project the source solution onto the cortex, BESA Research truly computes the solution on the individual cortex.
  • Age-appropriate template FEM head models – templates were derived by non-linear averaging across real brains in narrow age-ranges from infancy to adulthood. The template models are of particular relevance for experiments that do not have MRI images of all subjects, for example if the subjects are children or infants.
  • Resting state source montages – Source montages are available for the Default Mode Network, the Fronto-Parietal Task Control network, as well as Dorsal and Ventral Attention networks. These montages can be used for swiftly analyzing resting state data.
