March 8, 2018
1:30 pm - 2:30 pm
NIL Large Conference Room (Medical Campus, 4525 Scott Ave, East Bldg 2311)

“Maximizing information in brain imaging studies: dynamics, prediction, data-fusion, deep learning, data capture”

Topic: Examining dynamic networks of brain function

Background: Dr. Vince Calhoun is a Distinguished Professor in the Departments of Electrical and Computer Engineering (primary), Neurosciences, Computer Science, and Psychiatry at the University of New Mexico.  He is the President (Executive Science Officer) of the Mind Research Network in Albuquerque, New Mexico.  Dr. Calhoun is the Director of Image Analysis and MR Research, and Professor of Translational Neuroscience.  Dr. Calhoun develops techniques for making sense of complex brain imaging data.  Because each imaging modality has limitations, the integration of these data is needed to understand the healthy and especially the disordered human brain.  Dr. Calhoun has created algorithms that map dynamic networks of brain function, structure and genetics, and how these are affected while being stimulated by various tasks or in individuals with mental illness such as schizophrenia.
