Complex network analyses of fMRI data
Trainer: Dr. Carsten Gießing
During last years there has been a growing interest in analysing the human brain as a complex system of interconnected processing nodes. Such analyses have provided important new insights into the correlation between the organization, dynamics and functions of brain networks and human behaviour. During the course an introduction will be given how to analyse an fMRI data as complex network using graph theory. The course will focus on the analysis of ‘fMRI’ data which need specific analysis approaches to deal with the requirements inherent to the quality of the measured data.
