Sylvius Lectures

Sylvius Lectures

sylvius1The Sylvius Lectures refer to a prestigious lecture series organized and funded by the Leiden Institute for brain and Cognition (LIBC). Named after the German-Dutch physiologist and anatomist Franciscus Sylvius, discoverer of the brain’s Sylvian fissure, who died in Leiden in 1672, this annual lecture series presents a set of five or six internationally renowned speakers. Research areas of these invited speakers relate to one of the LIBC hot spots, i.e. Junior (brain development), Language, Stress or Pharmacology. The lectures are for free and open to all interested parties, and no registration is required.

Bridging scales with neuroimaging: challenges and opportunities

Date and time: 30 november 2017, 4:30pm

Neuroimaging provides unique opportunities to address one of the grand challenges in neuroscience: relating structure and function over many orders of magnitude. I will focus on different aspects of scale (space, time and people), and how the next generation of MRI methods will enable us to face this challenge. Themes will include adopting a synergistic approach to acquisition and analysis; relating neuroimaging tools to complementary techniques; and the new era of population neuroimaging.

Karla Miller develops novel methods for acquiring, reconstructing and analyzing MRI scans of the brain. Her early research focused on techniques for studying brain function and connectivity. More recently, she has also begun to develop techniques for studying tissue microstructure with MRI, including the use of complementary technologies like microscopy.
