Investigation of Causal Brain Networks from fMRI Data


Dr.Gopi Deshpande is working on improving and inventing methods of obtaining causal brain networks from fMRI data. The spatial localization model of brain function, though useful, is incomplete. Rather, it is being recognized that neural information processing is distributed in nature. This has led to the connectionist model of brain function and an explosion of research in this area. Dr.Deshpande is using autoregressive and Bayesian connectivity models for characterizing brain networks underlying a variety of sensory, motor and cognitive tasks.
