Seminar by Jonathan Crofts (NTU)

On Tuesday the 12th of December at 2pm in JUN0001,  Jonathan Crofts from Nottingham Trent University will be giving a seminar on “Complex brain networks in health, development and disease”, as part of the third-year undergraduate Advanced Topics in Mathematics module at the University of Lincoln. His talk abstract is as follows:

Modern, non-invasive brain imaging techniques are providing unparalleled access into the living human brain, and the emergent complex data sets describing global architectures, of both structure and function, open up fascinating opportunities to characterise and understand what is perhaps nature’s most complex system. Recently, a number of studies have shown that brain injury and disease manifest via faulty, disrupted brain networks (e.g. schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, multiple sclerosis and stroke). Yet, despite significant progress in our understanding of human brain connectivity over the past decade, clinical applications of network analysis of the brain are still in their infancy. In this talk, I shall provide an overview of the state-of-the-art in complex network applications to clinical neuroscience, before considering a number of recent extensions in the area, the aim of which is to construct more physiologically realistic network models of the human brain via a combined theoretical/experimental approach.
