Dr. Thomason presented at the Fourth Biennial Conference on Resting State/Brain Connectivity this past fall at Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Boston. The conference included sessions on multi-modal imaging approaches to measure brain structure as well as brain function, human imaging methods and animal models. Approximately one third of the conference was dedicated to applications of brain connectivity methods and models in neurological and psychiatric disease. There was also a special session dedicated to emerging technologies. Dr. Thomason’s work highlighted the progress being made in magnetic resonance imaging and functional connectivity of the human fetal brain.
