Research in the Modelling stream develops new analytic methods and mathematical models to understand the brain. The core focus is on using bioinformatics and multivariate analysis to understand genetic influences on brain organization, graph theory to develop models of how brain networks develop, and biophysical models of neural activity to generate realistic simulations of whole-brain dynamics. We place a major emphasis on integrating theory with experimental data in both clinical and healthy populations.

Key Approaches

  • Multivariate statistics and bioinformatics
  • Generative models of graphs
  • Biophysical models of large-scale neural dynamics, such as neural mass and neural field models
