This working group will work on standards for neuroimaging studies and on large-scale analyses of neuroimaging data. Experts in this group will include clinical researchers and specialists in neuroimaging methods including electroencephalography (EEG) and magnetic resonance tomography (MRI). In order to identify the neurobiological mechanisms of the different forms of tinnitus, this working group will concentrate on the following topics:

  1. Establish standard operation procedures (SOPs) for data acquisition and analysis development and standardization of innovative data-analysing methods (e.g. connectivity analysis, individual component analysis)
  2. Implementing neuroimaging data in the database
  3. Testing the neurobiological entity of clinically defined subtypes
  4. Testing neuroimaging as an endophenotypization strategy in tinnitus research
  5. Preparation and submission of grant proposals to national, European, and international funding agencies, in order to ensure continuous support of studies
  6. Organization of Short Term Scientific Missions, with the goal to train pre- and postdoctoral scientists in imaging acquisition and analysis
  7. Implementation of SOPs and imaging data on the COST Action website
