Stephanie J. Forkel to speak on ' Variability of Structural Connections within and between the Species '
On Thursday, June, 4, HSE Centre for Language and Brain will host a talk by Dr. Stephanie J. Forkel (Brain Connectivity and Behaviour Laboratory (BCBLab), Sorbonne Universities; Groupe d'Imagerie Neurofonctionnelle (GIN), CNRS, CEA University of Bordeaux).
Title: Variability of structural connections within and between the species
Abstract: A large amount of variability exists across human brains; revealed initially on a small scale by postmortem studies and, more recently, on a larger scale with the advent of neuroimaging. MRI-based diffusion-weighted imaging tractography has been used to segment whole brain tractograms and study the subdivisions of the living human brain based on its anatomical connectivity. In recent years, this method has evolved as a comparative anatomy tool allowing us to study the in vivo anatomy on a large scale and across species. Tractography studies revealed some shared and unique patterns of structural connectivity within and across species. During this lecture, I will present some recent MRI-based diffusion imaging applications to study the variability within and across species with a special focus on the frontal and parietal white matter pathways.
