Quantitative Life Sciences (QLS) weekly interdisciplinary lecture series
Open to students, researchers and staff of the organizing partners: the Ludmer Center, Centre for Applied Mathematics in Bioscience and Medicine (CAMBAM), and the McGill initiative in Computational Medicine (MiCM)
Lecture 6: Modelling of connectivity in normal and disordered brains
Alan Evans, McGill University
Abstract: In recent years, clinical brain research has increasingly taken advantage of the principles of network theory to study the macroscopic organization of the normally developing brain and its breakdown in various brain diseases. This talk will provide an overview of work going on at the McGill Centre for Integrative Neuroscience in the areas of normal development, autism and Alzheimer’s disease that demonstrate the broad applicability of “connectomics” analysis. The talk will also review large-scale neuroinformatics initiatives across McGill, across Canada and internationally that are applying these analytic strategies.
