Approved research

Characterizing brain networks and their inter-individual variability by high-throughput imaging and computational modelling

Principal Investigator: Professor Simon Eickhoff
Approved Research ID: 41655
Approval date: April 26th 2019

Lay summary

The human brain shows a marked level of neurobiological variability between individuals. Likewise, individuals also vary widely in aspects that may be considered causes (age, gender, general health, environmental factors) and effects (cognitive functions, socio-affective traits) of this neurobiological variability. However, the relationship between neurobiological and behavioural variability relate to each other, is still enigmatic. The goal of this project is to probe the relationship between brain features on one hand and a broad range of behaviours on the other hand in order to provide an overview on brain-behaviour and brain-environment relationships.
