“The Organization of Brain Networks: Structure, Function, Communication”
Background: Dr. Sporn’s work is focused on the study of brain connectivity and networks (connectomics), including patterns of anatomical projections, and the role of connectivity in shaping brain dynamics and function. In his Lab they address these problems through analysis and modeling of empirical data derived from a variety of animal models as well as noninvasive imaging of the human brain. Using a broad set of tools and techniques from the area of complex systems and networks, they aim to identify organizing principles that underlie the brain’s structural and functional organization. They apply these computational and network techniques to data and problems in the areas of brain development, comparative anatomy and evolution, cognitive performance, and in applications to various clinical disorders.
