Program Abstract

The objective of this symposium is to share advances, innovations and emerging ideas in network neuroscience from a lifespan perspective. Emphasis will be on developing recommendations and framework protocols to optimize network neuroimaging acquisition techniques, analysis and modelling approaches. We will explore the role of network neuroscience in understanding cognitive function and dysfunction across the lifespan as well as highlight opportunities for translational research and intervention.
