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!!
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 […]
I am trained in statistical mechanics and applied topology. My 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 […]
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!
Jolanda was in the top 3 pitchers at CCAnext!!
In our latest paper we show that in glioma patients connections between different brain areas are affected on a broad scale. Specifically connections linked to brain regions that play a central role in information processing (hubs) are altered. By analysing 71 functional MRI scans of glioma (brain tumor) patients and a cohort of healthy controls […]
