Biomedical Engineering Seminar Series
Start Date: 3/25/2015Start Time: 4:00 PM
End Date: 3/25/2015

Event Description:

Speaker: Bharat Biswal, Professor and Chair of the Biomedical Engineering Department at the New Jersey Institute of Technology, Newark College of Engineering

Dr. Biswal helped create the 1,000 Functional Connectomes Project, which gathers functional brain imaging data from centers around the world. The project created an open resource for mapping and understanding brain functions. He recently co-founded the peer-reviewed journal Brain Connectivity and serves as a co-editor. It is considered to be one of the leading journals for researchers and clinicians interested in brain connectivity. His hope is that a new journal focusing solely on brain connectivity will foster greater research interest in this area. Another aim is to bring together researchers currently working on all aspects of brain connectivity to help accelerate the field and to assist doctors and clinicians to detect brain diseases.

Lecture Title: The Brain at Rest vs. the Brain at Work: Using fMRI to Study Differences in Brain Networks

Abstract: There is a growing interest in studies of human brain networks using state functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). However, it is unclear whether and how the brain networks measured during the resting-state exhibit comparable properties to the brain networks during task performance. In the present study, we
investigated meta-analytic activation patterns among brain regions based upon published neuroimaging studies, and compared the activation network configurations with those in the resting-state network.
