Dr. James Pang | Geometric influences on brain function and regional organization

  • Datum: 21.05.2024
  • Uhrzeit: 13:00 - 14:00
  • Vortragende(r): Dr. James Pang
  • Dr James Pang is a Research Fellow at the School of Psychological Sciences, Monash University and an incoming NHMRC Emerging Leadership Fellow. He received his PhD in Physics from the University of Sydney and completed his postdoctoral training in the Brain Modelling Group at QIMR Berrghofer Medical Research Institute. His research employs a multidisciplinary approach that combines neuroimaging, biophysical modelling, and connectivity analysis to better understand the mechanisms of brain function in health, disease, and across species.

Dr Steffen Bollmann | How could we make scientific software FAIR

Despite the vital role of scientific software, it remains an overlooked part of research, often developed within short funding periods with little support for long-term maintenance. This results in software that is hard to discover and challenging to install. It also lacks interoperability across different computing systems, hindering its reuse and violating the FAIR principles - which advocate for scientific outputs to be Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable. In this talk, I will present our attempts at this problem through the Neurodesk.org project, and I will show what we are planning next. [mehr]

Shir Filo | Increasing the molecular specificity of quantitative MRI

Comprehensive description of brain tissue's microstructure is crucial for studying the normal and diseased brain. In the talk I will present an in-vivo biophysical framework for increasing the specificity of quantitative MRI to distinct microstructural features of brain tissue, such as the lipid composition and the iron homeostasis. This non-invasive approach identifies lipidomic-related changes in the aging human brain, and allows to test different aging theories. This approach also reveals the disrupted iron homeostasis in brain tumors, and provides iron-related information inaccessible by conventional MRI approaches. Finally, I will propose a new MRI protocol, for implementing this qMRI approach at the sub-voxel level. By monitoring microstructural processes in living brains, we hope to gain a quantitative and specific description of brain tissue that until now was possible only post-mortem, and may further advance human brain research.
