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.
