Big Data. Little Brains.
In collaboration with Flux Society
UNC Chapel Hill, in association with The Flux Society, will host a conference highlighting research using large, representative, or publicly available datasets to investigate developmental cognitive neuroscience. This conference will address the unique ability of larger, more representative datasets–and particularly those with multiple time points–to ask questions about brain development that have historically been impossible to address with the smaller, cross-sectional samples utilized in most neuroimaging research studies. The focus will be on research leveraging large datasets to understand functional and structural brain development in the context of connectomics, environmental influences on brain development, and typical and atypical trajectories of brain development.
