The core facility at the CATE center continues to serve as a resource infrastructure for research and education with a strong foundation in computing, information processing, and the biosciences. Funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF) since 1993, the CATE center has two major research thrusts: (1) brain research with neuroscience applications, and (2) assistive technology research with a focus on visual impairment and motor disability. In the areas of image and signal processing, our research focus continues to be in the development of techniques that are directly applicable to real-world problems just as we continue to expand their related computational and theoretical frameworks. Specific efforts are devoted to image modality co-registration, noise filtering, enhancing the application of the principal and independent component analyses, design of novel neural networks, and creating new pattern recognition paradigms.
