“From neuron to behavior: Investigating brain network function using multi-modal approach”
Hosted by the Department of Biomedical Engineering
Abstract: Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging (rsfMRI) provides a powerful tool to characterize the organizational architecture of whole-brain networks. However, several intrinsic issues have limited the potentials of rsfMRI from being fully realized. In this presentation I will discuss these issues, and demonstrate that they can be partially solved by integrating rsfMRI with cutting-edge neurotechnology such as optogenetics/chemogenetics, electrophysiology and behavioral methods, which allow multi-scale multi-dimensional information to be collected and modulated in rodent models.
