    Please join our educational course Fundamental Concepts and Methods in Network Neuroscience at OHBM 2020 in Montreal on the 26th of June.

    Fundamental Concepts and Methods in Network Neuroscience Workshop

    This workshop - organized by Dr. Alex Fornito - will cover essential aspects of constructing networks, such as how to define network nodes and measure diverse aspects of structural and functional connectivity. It will teach attendees critical considerations in the statistical analysis of connectomes and how to integrate brain imaging measures with other diverse kinds of data, such as those relating to cytoarchitecture, gene expression, and connectivity in other species. The workshop will also explain key concepts and measures, such as network communities, centrality and hubs, and models of communication processes and dynamics.

    Key Learning Outcomes of the Workshop

    • the strengths and weaknesses of different methods for parcellating the brain and defining network nodes;
    • how to quantify and interpret different measures of structural and functional connectivity;
    • how to define network communities and hubs, characterize communication processes on networks, and respect limitations of current analytic methods;
    • appropriate techniques for statistical inference on networks;
    • how to use both graph theoretic and biophysical models of brain network dynamics; and
    • how to conduct multimodal analyses to gain greater insight into network organization

    The Organization for Human Brain Mapping (OHBM) is an international society dedicated to using neuroimaging to discover the organization of the human brain. Other speakers at this year's annual meeting include:

    • Dr Petra Ritter (Director of the Brain Simulation Section at Charité Universitätsmedizin Berlin).
    • Dr Richard Betzel (Assistant Professor of Psychological and Brain Sciences at Indiana University)
    • Dr Andrew Zalesky (Associate Professor and National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Senior Research Fellow at the University of Melbourne).
