Event description

Description

The past decade has seen a transition of computational methods in human neuroimaging: from out-of-the box applications (e.g., image reconstruction on the MRI scanner, statistical analysis of fMRI data within SPM), to a diverse set of sophisticated and increasingly application-tailored approaches. In this symposium, we bring together recent advances in three areas: advanced acquisition methods and biophysical models for more precise inference on brain tissue properties or electromagnetic sources; generative and statistical models to infer hidden brain states and trajectories; and application of these methods in experimental research. Demonstrations of clinical application of such advances are embedded into the program.

Organised within a UCL/ZNZ collaboration and in the context of the Festival Zurich meets London, this symposium aims at bringing together researchers from Zurich and London who are active in these fields. A public lecture on translational neuromodelling will follow the scientific program.
