Posted on 19/05/2017Daytime Lecture - imaging the pathways of the brain
In this lecture, Prof Graeme Jackson will talk about contemporary imaging techniques, especially imaging the pathways in the living brain - from opera singers and musicians to epileptic teenagers.
The Florey's Imaging and Epilepsy group is at the forefront of unravelling the structural and functional abnormalities in the human brain that are associated with epilepsy and other neurological disorders. The group includes several collaborating laboratories, each with multidisciplinary teams of scientists, capable of utilising and advancing cutting-edge neuroimaging technology to address key biological questions in health and disease. Major areas of research include the study of brain networks, connectivity, cognition and injury; neuroimaging analysis methods development / neuroinformatics; and clinical translation to improved patient care.
The lecture will begin promptly at 11am and finish at approximately 12.15pm including question time.
