Prof. Calhoun's Lecture: Maximizing information in brain imaging studies: data capture, prediction, dynamics, and data-fusion

 Title: Maximizing information in brain imaging studies: data capture, prediction, dynamics, and data-fusion
Speaker: Prof. Vince D. Calhoun, University of New Mexico, USA
Chair: Prof. Jing Sui,  Brainnetome Center, CASIA
Time: 09:00-10:00, June. 2, 2017
Venue: The 1st meeting room, 3rd floor of the Intelligence Building 
The study of translational biomarkers in brain disorders is a very challenging and fruitful approach, which will empower a better understanding of healthy and diseased brains. In the past, studies of species like Brain imaging studies typically involve a relatively small number of experiments, each of which produce large amounts of noisy, high-dimensional data which are often analyzed in isolation or using relatively simple models. In this talk I will share our experience with approaches that can capture and aggregate large data sets, discuss some of the challenges and success in the use of brain imaging data to perform single-subject prediction of, e.g. disease, treatment outcome, or cognitive scores, and discuss several ways to mine available data to learn more about the brain including dynamic connectivity, data-fusion, and deep-learning. I will share results from a variety of studies and provide evidence that we can learn more from available data by approaching it in new ways.
