From Brain Networks to Cognitive Function

Olaf Sporns was asked to organize a symposium on networks for the annual meeting of the Association for Psychological Science 2013 and invited four of us to present our work: Paul Laurienti, Barry Horwitz, Randy McInstosh, and I. Lots of parallel sessions, so the room was somewhat small, but I believe it went well.

I described the work that I’ve done with Michael Anderson and more recently with Lucina Uddin (together with Josh Kinnison from my lab). Here are the slides:APS 2013

One part that I like is the possibility of characterizing the multidimensional functional fingerprint of a brain network — not a region.
