Whole Brain Connectivity Analysis of Ultra-High Field fMRI (HIFI-MRI)

Type: National Project

Duration: from 2013 Jan 01 to 2015 Jun 30

Financed by: FCT

Prime Contractor: INESC-ID (Other)

The three mainobectives of this project are: (1) new fMRI data of whole-brain activity obtained using ultra-high field r-fMRI, and pre-processing of this data in order to make it suitable for complex network analysis; (2) extraction of functional connectivity patterns across the brain and underlying functional network and improved methods and algorithms for the analysis of functional networks, with emphasis on methods for the identification of recurrent patterns and clusters in scale-free complex networks; and (3) increased understanding of the added value of ultra-high field MRI in the analysis of resting state brain functional connectivity, as compared with data obtained using other methods.
