Information technology for neuroimaging
The goal of neuroimaging is to analyse brain structure and function through image-based information. This is challenging because of i) the intrinsic complexity of the brain structure , ii) the limitations of image-based observations (noise, artifacts, resolution), iii) the variability of brain structure across individuals, which makes subject-to-subject comparison a very difficult topic.
For these reasons, we propose to build advanced analytical tools with the best statistical, machine learning and image processing tools to extract relevant information from the data.
