The Mind Research Network (MRN) presents a lecture by Angela R. Laird titled, "Meta-analytic functional parcellation of intrinsic connectivity networks using the BrainMap database."
The lecture will be held on Wednesday, July 14 at 11:45 a.m. in the MRN large conference room in the Pete and Nancy Domenici Hall. A light lunch will be served.
Laird, an assistant professor of radiology at the University of Texas, will speak on her research in functional neuroimaging studies. She found that the characterization of intrinsic connectivity networks (ICN) is possible using the BrainMap database.
Laird will review her results which points to a data-driven way of ordering mental operations and task associations as well as the intrinsic brain networks that drive them.
MRN, located on the University of New Mexico campus in Albuquerque, is an independent non-profit organization dedicated to advancing the diagnosis and treatment of mental illness and other brain disorders. MRN is an interdisciplinary association of scientists who collaborate with researchers at universities, national laboratories and research centers around the world. The organization is focused on imaging and genetics technology and its emergence as an integral element of neuroscience investigation.
