Title: "Edge-centric connectomics."
Speaker: Richard Betzel, Assistant Professor, Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences, IU Network Science Institute, Indiana University Bloomington, Bloomington, Indiana
Brains can be modeled as functional networks, where interregional connections and their weights are estimated as a correlations. Dr. Betzel will present an approach for exactly decomposing these connections (edges) into their time-varying contributions. This approach yields framewise estimates of networks across time and can be used to estimate the novel construct of "edge functional connectivity".
