Abstract: Humans can easily and flexibly accomplish a wide variety of tasks, with different perceptual and cognitive demands, depending on their goals. This ability appears to depend on the coordinated interactions between brain regions that are organized into large-scale networks. In my research, I am interested in characterizing how human brain networks are organized, how they contribute to the myriad goal-directed behaviors that are essential to our daily lives, and how these processes break down. In my talk, I will present an overview of my research, highlighting recent projects centered on understanding functional brain network organization and how it changes over different timescales. I will introduce the use of a "precision" high-data approach to measuring brain networks reliably at the individual level and discuss some of the insights from this work.
The Feindel Virtual Brain and Mind (VBM) Seminar Series
"Advancing the vision of Dr. William Feindel (1918–2014), former Director of the Neuro (1972–1984) and Founding Director of the McConnell Brain Imaging Centre (1984), to constantly bridge the clinical and research realms. The talks will highlight the latest advances and discoveries in neuropsychology, cognitive neuroscience, and neuroimaging."
Speakers will include scientists from across The Neuro, as well as colleagues and collaborators locally and from around the world. The series is intended to provide a virtual forum for scientists and trainees to continue to foster interdisciplinary exchanges on the mechanisms, diagnosis and treatment of brain and cognitive disorders.
