Satellite symposium on 27th “Human brain dynamics research in connectome era”

Recent human connectome researches have revealed macro-scale network organizations of human brain. Using diffusion MRI and resting-state fMRI, whole-brain structural and functional network can be identified and it has been found that identified network can predict personal traits such as age, sex, IQ and mental illness. However dynamic interactions on brain network and their functional role have been largely unknown yet. In this symposium, we will discuss current achievements and future direction of human brain dynamics research in connectome era.

Date           :  27th November, Monday, 2017
Time           : 13:00-18:00 Symposium (50 min talk and 10 min discussion)
