|Topic:||Statistical Neuroimaging Analysis: An Overview|
|Time:||10:00 am - 11:00 am|
|Venue:||Lady Shaw Building LT2 with ZOOM (hybrid mode)|
Understanding the inner workings of human brains, as well as their connections with neurological disorders, is one of the most intriguing scientific questions. Studies in neuroscience are greatly facilitated by a variety of neuroimaging technologies, including anatomical magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), electroencephalography (EEG), diffusion tensor imaging, positron emission tomography (PET), among many others. The size and complexity of medical imaging data, however, pose numerous challenges, and call for constant development of new statistical methods. In this talk, I give an overview of a range of neuroimaging topics our group has been investigating, including imaging tensor analysis, brain connectivity net-work analysis, multimodality analysis, and imaging causal analysis. I also illustrate with a number of specific case studies.
