Brain Matters #9 - The Brain as a Network: good or bad?
This episode will take place on 17 February 2022 from 16:30 - 17:30 CET. It will feature the following researchers in the Human Brain Project:
- Pierpaolo Sorrentino (Aix-Marseille University) will present his poster 'On the topochronic map of the human brain dynamics'. Drawing from techniques adapted from statistical mechanics, this presentation introduces a new in vivo approach for measuring functional delays across the whole brain using magneto/electroencephalography and integrating them with the structural bundles.
- Borana Dollomaja (Aix-Marseille University) will present her poster 'Virtual Epileptic Patient: From science to clinical trial'. The virtual epileptic patient is a brain modeling approach which combines mathematical models of seizure dynamics, patient brain imaging data and model fitting techniques to estimate the epileptogenic zone of the patient’s brain and help in the surgical prognosis of the patient.
- Giovanni Rabuffo (Aix-Marseille University) will present his poster 'Neuronal Cascades shape whole-brain functional dynamics at rest'. His team has uncovered a new phenomenon, neuronal cascades, and demonstrates their role in driving the switching behavior of functional connectivity states.
The session will be moderated by Egidio D'Angelo, who is Full Professor of Physiology at the Dept. of Brain and Behavioral Sciences of the University of Pavia.
