Fernando receives Trainee Poster Award!

Fernando has received the Trainee Poster Award for his work, which was also a presentation in the workshop on “Phase transitions in the brain” at the Computational Neuroscience meeting in Barcelona. Congratulations Fernando!!    

BrainLayer: the multilayer brain networks underlying cognitive decline

We are very happy to continue our research with an NWO-Vidi! This is a short summary of the 5-year project: Cognitive deterioration in lesional brain disease, such as cerebrovascular accidents, multiple sclerosis and glioma, weighs heavily on patients, their caregivers and society, particularly since curative treatment is unavailable. Variation in cognitive decline is large: some […]

Fernando Santos has joined the lab!

I am trained in statistical mechanics and applied topology.┬áMy current interests are in using methods of topology, geometry, statistical mechanics, and topological data analysis (TDA) in neuroscience. During my Ph.D. at Federal University of Pernambuco (Brazil), I studied the topological aspects of phase transitions in classical Hamiltonian systems. Later, I spend one year as a […]

MuMoBrain has started!

In order to celebrate the first included subject for our MultiModal Brain study (which aims to use multilayer graph theory in order to advance our understanding of individual differences in cognitive functioning), we had a little get together with the large team and ate this homemade MuMoBrain-logo cake!
