Due to a combination of genetics and environmental factors (epigenetics), the structure and function of neural connections are in constant transformation. Until recently, our understanding of the influence of environmental factors, including synaptogenesis and synaptic pruning, has been largely derived from animal models and post-mortem studies.
Novel neuroimaging technologies, methods and studies, aided by advanced image-processing algorithms, have now created a paradigm shift, permitting comprehensive, non-invasive investigation of brain structure and function in humans.
Neuroimaging combined with network neuroscience has shifted the focus of research from ‘developmental changes in brain structure and function’ to ‘cognitive brain networks’ – the changing relationships among disparate brain components during both normal and abnormal brain development.
Join us for this OHBM 2020 satellite symposium to learn about some of these key areas of change:
- Recent advances in methodologies in analysing neuroimaging data.
- Insights into brain development from large-scale open datasets including ABCD, ABIDE, etc.
- The importance of longitudinal neuroimaging data in understanding cognitive development and psychopathology.
- The role of genetics and epigenetics in normal and abnormal brain development.
Organised by Budhachandra Khundrakpam, McGill University, Canada; Kathryn Mills, University of Oregon, USA; Catherine Level, University of Calgary; and Marc Seal, University of Melbourne, Australia.
