Brain Imaging in the Information Age
Wednesday, March 16th, 2016
6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Imaging technologies (MRI, PET, etc.) have revolutionized our ability to understand the brain, providing a clearer picture of how the brain is put together (structural imaging) and how it operates (functional imaging). Dr. Alan Evans will provide an overview of the past, present and future of brain imaging as a research tool and demonstrate how combining brain-scanning technologies with sophisticated computational modelling can provide hitherto inaccessible information about what is normal brain development and how this changes in the presences of ageing diseases and mental illness.
Facilitator: Julien Doyon, Ph.D, Scientific Director of the Functional Neuroimaging Unit, Institut universitaire de gériatrie de Montréal (IUGM) research center
