Pedro A. Valdes-sosa – 1st expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • Latin American Brain Mapping Network (LABMAN)
    NeuroImage, 2009
    Co-Authors: Kâmil Uludağ, Alan C. Evans, Valeria Della-maggiore, Silvia Kochen, Edson Amaro, O. Sierra, Pedro A. Valdés-hernández, V. Medina, Pedro A. Valdes-sosa

    Abstract:

    Abstract On March 8, 2008 in Havana, the Latin American Network for Brain Mapping (LABMAN) was created with participants from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, Cuba and Mexico. The focus of LABMAN is to promote neuroimaging and systems neuroscience in the region through the implementation of training and exchange programs, and to increase public awareness of the Latin American potential to contribute both to basic and applied research in human Brain Mapping.

  • Latin American Brain Mapping Network
    , 2008
    Co-Authors: Kâmil Uludağ, Pedro A. Valdes-sosa

    Abstract:

    On March 7-8, 2008, cognitive and imaging neuroscientists from the Americas held a workshop in Havana, Cuba, to launch the Latin American Brain Mapping Network (LABMAN); a project allied to the International Organization for Human Brain Mapping established in 1993. The LABMAN initiative is intended to formalize disparate collaborative threads into a Latin American network via exchange of software, data, personnel, training and ideas through a coordinated network, both organizational and electronic. In general, neuroscience and neuroimaging research in Latin America is hindered by a lack of critical mass within any single country. By organizing these communities at a supra-national level, LABMAN seeks to nurture Brain Mapping research at the national level, acting as a catalyst for national programs. Furthermore, in this report, statuses of Brain Mapping in different Latin American countries (Argentina, Brazil, Columbia, Cuba and Mexico) are summarized. This is not meant to be an exhaustive report about neuroimaging work in these countries but rather to underscore the potential of the region in the development and use of Brain Mapping as a research and health tool. We are inviting research groups and individuals in Latin America not represented currently to join LABMAN.

Peter Bandettini – 2nd expert on this subject based on the ideXlab platform

  • Information-based functional Brain Mapping
    Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America, 2006
    Co-Authors: Nikolaus Kriegeskorte, Rainer Goebel, Peter Bandettini

    Abstract:

    The development of high-resolution neuroimaging and multielectrode electrophysiological recording provides neuroscientists with huge amounts of multivariate data. The complexity of the data creates a need for statistical summary, but the local averaging standardly applied to this end may obscure the effects of greatest neuroscientific interest. In neuroimaging, for example, Brain Mapping analysis has focused on the discovery of activation, i.e., of extended Brain regions whose average activity changes across experimental conditions. Here we propose to ask a more general question of the data: Where in the Brain does the activity pattern contain information about the experimental condition? To address this question, we propose scanning the imaged volume with a “searchlight,†whose contents are analyzed multivariately at each location in the Brain.
