OHBM 2023 Satellite Events

Each year, during the Annual Meeting, OHBM members may choose to host a satellite event in our host city showcasing like minded topics to our attendees. These events have not been vetted by OHBM’s Program Committee during the selection process; however, they might be of interest to you during your stay in Montréal.

Lifespan Network Neuroscience Symposium: Examining the trajectory of human development in health and disease  
Thursday, July 20, 2023 12:30 PM UTC (UTC) - 9:15 PM UTC (UTC)
Montreal Neurological Institute (Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre), 3801 rue University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2B4, CA

The Neuro will host the Lifespan Network Neuroscience Symposium, a pre OHBM event that will take place on July 20, 2023. The one-day symposium will bring together a panel of international experts to share advances, innovations, and emerging ideas in network neuroscience from a lifespan perspective. Emphasis will be on developing recommendations and framework protocols to optimize network neuroimaging acquisition techniques, analysis, and modelling approaches. Speakers will also discuss the role of network neuroscience in understanding cognitive function and dysfunction across the lifespan as well as highlight opportunities for translational research and intervention.

Meta-Connectomics Workshop: Network Modeling in the BrainMap HPC Portal  
Friday, July 21, 2023 8:00 AM UTC (UTC) - 5:00 PM UTC (UTC)
de Grandpre Communications Center, Montreal Neurological Institute, 3801 University Street, Montreal, H3A 2B

Network modeling of the coordinate-based neuroimaging literature will be taught in a full-day workshop by the BrainMap team, Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC) team, and expert collaborators.

Workshop focus: Multivariate meta-analytics, including: Meta-analytic Connectivity Modeling (MACM), Independent Components Analysis (ICA), Graph Theoretic Modeling (GTM), Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), and Author-Topic Modeling. Running analysis pipelines in BrainMap HPC will be taught. Connectomic biomarker-development strategies including out-of-sample primary-data validations will be illustrated.

Speakers: Peter Fox, Joe Allen, Mick Fox, Danilo Bzdok, Kim Ray, Florence Chiang, Felipe Salinas. 

Featured Resources: BrainMap HPC Portal, TACC, BrainMap Voxel-based physiology & voxel-based morphometry DataBases, 

Format: Lectures in a.m.; hands-on training in p.m. (Bring your laptop computer.)

Registration: Advance registration required (via URL)

Gradients of Organization 2023 Workshop  
Friday, July 21, 2023 12:30 PM UTC (UTC) - 10:30 PM UTC (UTC)
Montreal Neurological Institute Jeanne Timmins Amphitheatre, 3801 rue University, Montreal, QC, H3A 2B4, CA

Recent years have seen a rise of new methods and applications to study smooth spatial transitions — or gradients —of brain organization. Identification and analysis of cortical gradients provides a framework to study brain organization across species, to examine changes in brain development and aging, and to more generally study the interrelation between brain structure, function and cognition. In this pre-OHBM workshop, held on July 21, 2023, we will bring together outstanding junior and senior scientists to discuss the challenges and opportunities afforded by this emerging perspective.

Early career researchers will take centre stage for a series of talks on state-of-the-art development and application of gradient approaches, while a diverse range of established scientists from across the globe will chair the proceedings. In this manner, we hope to stimulate discussions on how gradients are changing our understanding of brain organization and to initiate fellow researchers to this burgeoning field.
