Brain imaging: from neurosignals to functional brain mappingMS19

Our understanding of the functioning of the brain relies on minimally invasive imaging modalities, requiring advanced computational methods. New questions about brain functions pose computational challenges that need to be addressed by the imaging algorithms and by the data acquisition systems. The aim of the MS is to bring together mathematicians, computational scientists, and neuroscientists to discuss the most relevant advances in brain imaging. The main topics that will be addressed are brain modeling, signal and image processing, inversion methods, brain networks. The goal is to provide an interdisciplinary forum where scholars from different area will exchange ideas and discuss open.
