IBIO Neuroassembly on Cognitive Virtual Brain
Prof. Petra Ritter is giving a presentation at the IBIO Neuroassembly, taking place online on Thursday, July 14th, 2022 at 4 pm (CEST).
This seminar focuses on "Key principles that lead to cognitive performance variability in personalized Virtual Brains".
IBIO Neuroassembly is a monthly seminar series organized by MSc Integrative Neuroscience students mentored by Prof. Kristine Krug, at the Otto-von-Guericke University, Magdeburg, Germany.
With personalized computational brain network modeling, we investigated how decision-making, depends on the synchrony of functional brain networks. We used functional connectivity (FC), structural connectivity and cognitive test results from 650 subjects of the Human Connectome Project to build personalized brain network models. We, then, coupled the individual large-scale models with functional attractor circuits and showed how inputs, from the large-scale brain network, modulate decision-making and working memory, reproducing empirical relationships between FC and behavioral performace.
Our simulation results mechanistically link excitation-inhibition balance with fluid intelligence, decision-making, working-memory, reaction times and brain synchrony.
