Unlocking the Enigma of Brain Connectivity
The UNC School of Data Science and Society has unveiled the recipients of their inaugural round of seed grants. These grants are designed to ignite groundbreaking collaborations at the crossroads of interdisciplinary research in data science. Among the pioneers chosen to embark on this journey is the team composed of Professors Caroline Moosmueller, Shahar Kovalsky, and Martin Styner, a dynamic blend of expertise from the Department of Mathematics, Department of Computer Science, and Department of Psychiatry.
This trio of innovative minds plan to develop intricate mathematical models and cutting-edge algorithms, poised to unlock the enigmatic secrets of the human brain. Their focus is the spatial and temporal dynamics of functional brain connectivity, a pivotal puzzle piece in understanding the intricacies of cognitive control and providing a beacon of hope in the fight against neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimer’s disease.
