Novel approaches in transpecies whole-brain network analysis Workshop

2021-12-20 - 2022-01-21

Non-invasive mapping of brain functional activity provides key information to understand brain function and dysfunction at the individual level (personalized medicine). The development of novel functional imaging tools has emerged over the past years from functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to neuromodulatory tools. These, combined with the observation that large-scale neuronal networks tend to be conserved across species, offer stepping-stones to better understand the brain, and its pathological manifestations. This symposium will present novel methods used to elucidate mechanisms in clinical imaging, and means to enhance those with forward and back translations in animals. The symposium will gather established and rising stars in clinical and preclinical neuroimaging with the objective to inform the wider neuroscience community in the developments allowing for the better interpretation of functional connectivity markers used to study the healthy and diseased brain. The target audience is neuroscientists working with mammal models (physiology, animal behaviour), and/or applying neuroimaging tools in healthy and patient cohorts.
